You can never have too much storage. USB flash drives, internal solid-state drives, iPhone memory — more is always better. This versatile WD My Passport Wireless External Hard Drive adds 2TB to nearly any gadget you own with a Wi-Fi or USB connection. It typically sells for $200, but Amazon currently has it on sale for $159.99 shipped, which is the best price we’ve ever seen.wd-my-passport-wireless-box

Miraculously, this deal nets you twice as much storage as the 1TB model and is more than $4 cheaper. That’s a great price in its own right, but for a limited time, Amazon will also toss in a 16GB microSDHC card with adapter for free (~$9 value).

You can connect it over USB 3.0 to transfer tons of data at high-speeds like any portable hard drive, but this drive goes much further. Built-in Wireless-N with MIMO enables you to save and access files on any iOS or Android device. What’s more, it can serve up to 4 HD video streams to mobile devices at a time without the need for a live internet connection.

According to WD, you can expect up to 6 hours of video streaming on a full charge of the rechargeable battery. Use the built-in SD slot to transfer images from our DSLR camera to your iPhone on-the-fly.
