Im tempted to get this at staples, but the reviews on this (3tb specifically) are not good. Since this will serve as a backup i dont want to be jeopardize my data.

However at $24 a terabyte, if you need a spare temp drive, that you can erase and copy stuff on repeatdly and dont really care about the data magically disappearing then you should buy this.

Seagate Backup Plus had a good deal of $120 for 4 Terabyte, which you could price match to Staples, and stack either a $10 or $25 coupon. However for some reason the backup plus has an issue with Windows Backup (you cannot use Microsofts tool, u have to use Seagates disc wizard tool instead).

The best I have found is WD, which appears to have a better reliability in reviews. Plus they also seem to address the software issues better with proactive patches.

NONETHELESS A DEAL IS A DEAL OP! Good Find! Thumbs up and Rep given!
