expiredWD’s 12TB Easystore Hard Drive gets first price drop to $180, more from $90

As part of its early Black Friday sale, Best Buy is offering the Western Digital 12TB Easystore USB 3.0 Desktop Hard Drive for $179.99 shipped. Usually selling for $280, today’s offer is the very first price drop we’ve seen and subsequently a new low on WD’s latest offering. For comparison, that’s less than most 10TB desktop drives sell for at Amazon right now. Bringing 12TB of storage to your workstation, grabbing this desktop hard drive is a great way to ensure your machine stays backed up for years to come. WD’s Easystores typically pack White label NAS-grade drives (or rebranded Red series) and early reports show the same for its 12TB models. Rated 4.3/5 stars so far and other capacity Easystore drives are some of the most well-reviewed options out there. More below.

Seagate is synonymous with computer storage, and today they announced their latest in server-driven solutions. Announcing their IronWolf, IronWolf Pro, and BarraCuda Pro 12TB drives, Seagate launched themselves to the front of the line when it comes to mass data storage. As a quick look into the drives, the BarraCuda Pro is designed to be the fastest and highest capacity consumer drive on the market. It’s built to be used for data-intensive processes like transferring large files or doing things like photo/video editing. The IronWolf and IronWolf Pro drives are more geared toward NAS/Server usage. All of the drives are a 3.5-inch form-factor and are built to be inserted into your standard NAS or computer.

Amazon today offers the Toshiba Canvio Connect II 3TB Portable Hard Drive in Black or Red (Model HDTC830XK3C1) for $95 shipped.

That’s an all time low for this 4.5/5 star rated portable hard drive that connects and is powered via USB3. While most people will use this kind of thing for backups or sneaker-netting huge files around, there are some better uses for this type of device.

  • Throw all of your music on it and plug it into your car’s powered USB for listening to tons of  music on the go
  • Plug it into your Router’s USB port and make it a NAS for storing/sharing movies and Time Machine backups
  • Pop it into your XBOX USB port for tons of cheap storage.
