Recommended Posts

Toshiba X300 HDWE160XZSTA 6TB Internal Hard Drive (2-year limited warranty) ~ $169.99



Seagate - Backup Plus Hub 8TB External USB 3.0 Desktop Hard Drive - Black (2 year warranty... though likely void if they can tell you removed it... not sure) ~ $169.99 or $25 off with VISA Checkout Discount = $144.99



Not what I had hoped drive prices & availability would be, but seems to be the best large hard drive prices for this year.

You DO have to watch very carefully (and read the fine print) on some of these deals -- especially at Best Buy.  I recently bought a printer at a VERY good price for my daughter based on their e-mail specials ... bought it right away and selected store pick-up so I could drive down and get it later;  then that evening I decided to buy another one for my grandson, but when I went online to buy it the price had more than DOUBLED !!    This was perhaps 6 hours after I bought the first one.  (I didn't buy the 2nd one)


... Picked up the printer the next day - set it up and it works very nicely.  Then - lo & behold - Best Buy had another e-mail this weekend with the same deal, so I did get a 2nd one at the same price (online with free shipping this time, as they were no longer in stock for local store pickup).

Bought 2 of the 6TB toshiba's.  These will go into my primary backup array for dual parity and last me for years to come as I slowly upgrade from 2/3 tB's to 4TB's.


I just saw the 6TB's from Wal-Mart were down to $159. Not sure if deal is still on. I picked up one about a week ago to replace my single parity drive.
