    Get it for: Rs 16,499 (The market price of the product is Rs 9,999.)

    There's no mistake in the name - this portable drive boasts of a ginormous five thousand gigabytes of storage space in a single drive, portable form factor. This one is really for the data hoarders because with that kind of capacity, you can store 25,00,000 JPEG images or 12,50,000 MP3 songs. Let's not even get into the numbers of documents.

    The drive itself has a polished aluminium enclosure and is available in silver or light blue (talking only about the 5TB variant). It works using USB 3.0 and on both Windows and Mac. The included software helps you with the backup process: choose to backup with a single click or schedule automatic backups as you please. In case you can't be bothered with that, you can mirror important folders from your computer so that backup folders are updated as you make changes/add files.

    In case you're worried about the price being a bit on the higher side, you should know that the online price hovers around the Rs11k mark. That's a princely sum of about 2 Rupees 20 paise per gigabyte of storage! Now that's great value!
