Amazon is offering the 3TB WD My Book external hard drive for $100 shipped. That’s $70 off the original listing, $30 off most trusted retailer’s regular prices, the best current price we can find on a new model, and within $10 of the best priced 3TB external we’ve seen from a brand name.

Perfect for new MacBook Air owners, Amazon has the Samsung 6X USB External Slim Blu-ray/CD/DVD reader and writer for $72 with free shipping. At $26 below retail, today’s deal marks the lowest price ever offered for this popular drive. The Samsung SE-506BB drive supports read/write functions for practically every disc you could imagine, refer to the product description for a full list. Weighing in at just 8.8 ounces, this slim player is ideal for travel. It is Mac compatible with the necessary software installed (mostly free); VLC Player, MakeMKV, etc. You can even plug this drive into a smart TV to watch Blu-ray movies.

The folks over at Wirecutter rate this their favorite external Blu-ray drive (even at $90), saying:

The $90 Samsung Blu-ray Writer can read and write Blu-rays, DVDs and CDs, so it’s got all the bases covered. It runs off a single USB port, weighs about half a pound, and works with both PCs and Macs. After testing it against two other external Blu-ray drives, I’m confident the Samsung SE-506BB strikes the right balance between price and performance.
