Not the backup plus, but still a great deal!

The hard drive enclosed in the other one is the Seagate Barracuda ST3000DL001 [newegg.com] Hard drive while this one has a Seagate ST3000DM001 [newegg.com]. It also doesn't have the backup software the other one had. However, if you don't care about that, this one is a better deal in my opinion. Both are 7200 RPM

Update: Other drive had a 2 year warranty while this one has a 1 year.

TRY STAPLES PRICE MATCH< some have gotten the deal even after amazon was OOS

7200rpm Seagate Barracuda - 2yr warranty

Warranty is only 1 year. Some are claiming 14 months in comments, but definitely not 2 years.

For those planning on taking this out of the enclosure (and thus ruining the warranty), you might want to consider running an error check on the drive before taking it out. You would hate to take it out, find that it's a dud drive and then not be able to return it.

As far as functionality, just the backup scheduling I think

Just about to post this, you beat me to it. Seems like a pretty decent price for 3TB!
