expiredWD’s 2TB Red HDD is perfect for expanding your Plex library at $63 (Reg. $85+)

Amazon is offering the WD Red 2TB NAS Hard Drive (WD20EFRX) for $62.99 shipped. This is down from its $86 going rate at B&H, and it’s been around that price at Amazon lately until dropping to its new all-time low there. I personally love WD’s Red hard drives and have several of them in my NAS setup. They’ve always been reliable for me with many terabytes of data being read or written. WD also ships its Red HDDs with a 3-year warranty to help give you peace of mind that your drive won’t fail you. Rated 4.4/5 stars.
