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.

Just got one and came here to post. Guess I am slow. It has been in my Amazon cart for quite some time and got the note when I checked in. Good price, but mixed reviews.

I was so mad that I couldn't get the $80 3TB externals from Staples or Office Depot earlier in the year. I was hesitant at the $100 drive from earlier today.. I think I'll get three of these 3TB drives at $10 cheaper per drive.

The good news is now I have no excuse not to build my two spare computers. I can put in a small OS hard drive and a larger 1tb or 1.5tb hard drive for storage and sell on craigslist.

Tempting as usual.

I have a used 3TB seagate that is loud, but has been solid so far. $90 isn't bad if you can put the drive through it's paces to see if it dies in the first 72 hours.

Is it worth getting the Square trade warranty? $8 for 2 years.
