I just came from my local Office Depot where this drive was on clearance for $96. Online shows retail price ($150) so I have no idea if it's my store only or not.

$24 per TB is pretty average. $37.50 per TB is a rip-off.

Valid point. I saw $50 off and figured it was a decent deal, but you are right, if it continues to drop it will truly be slick. I'll have to keep my eye on it.

Where are you guys finding 4TB drives where the price is below average of $96? I haven't been able to find any 4TB drives that are less than $100 new, internal or external.

Even at $96, I would rather have four 1tb portable drives than a 4tb large size drive. Even if I end up paying $35/drive for a 1tb. I know the percentage (40% more) seems like a lot. But it is so much more convenient to not deal with power adapters as well as not losing everything if the 4tb drive fails.

I get you. I just have so much that hoarding is becoming a problem and it has become worth it to go larger. I was planning on getting to its guts for the internal drive. I have a 4U server with space for another nine drives in it and an SA120 (12 bay) with RAID 6 that has a few of smaller drives I wouldn't mind replacing (three of them say MAXTOR on them nod).

I got one of these at OD but am having a bit of buyer's remorse** at $102 after tax.

BUT - I've been running a 3TB WD as a Time Machine Backup - and my internal is getting full - so the TM volume has run out of space. I NEED 4TB to replace the 3TB WD. I should probably just hook it up and forget it.

**Buyers remorse = Probably mostly due to the fact that I just picked up two 3TB Toshibas on mega clearance at WalMart for $25 each! :-)


EDIT - I just returned mine - I decided that 4TB isn't really big enough and the "deal" isn't motivating enough- I need 5TB or mre.
Anyone looking in Sarasota FL for one of these - go get it - last one in stock!

My store had it marked down to $82.xx on Friday. I was told clearance items get marked down on Friday so I will try again this week.

Grabbed one, wasn't lucky with the $80 something price, but $100 for 4TB is about the lowest I ever see and I'm in the middle of (slowly) upgrading my ZFS raid, I had six 2 TB hd's, now I have four 4 TB HD's and 2 of the old ones left. Two more and I can finally see the upgrade in storage!! Haha. BTW for those in Houston area, the Humble OfficeMax next to Deer Brook Mall has one left (at least, they had one pickup ticket left)
