Uh it would be $0.03 per GB. And a Terabyte is an even 1000GB. A TiB is 1024 GiB is probably what you're thinking of.

Nooooooo. It's 2TB, not 2TiB. So it's base 10 not base 2. Nevertheless these are much cheaper than $25/GB. These are only $30/TB or 3c/GB

'200GB cloud storage with OneDrive for 2 years (Must activate by June 30, 2017. May not be available in all countries.)'

For anyone who wants the oneDrive (like me), this might not be a good news

For any new USB 3.0 storage device, be it a HD, SSD or flash drive, would it make sense to add a USB 3.0 card to an old (really old--2006) MB that only has USB 2.0 ports and PCIe 1.1 1x slots? Would adding such a card meaningfully increase read and write speeds, even if they'd never even begin to approach ones you'd see using a newer MB with PCIe 2.0 or 3.0 slots, let alone built-in USB 3.0 ports?

here's a case it may make sense, since PCIe 1.1 is still capable of 250MB/s total bandwith, it should allow transfers of 40-90MB/s still above USB2.0 for an HDD

Thanks. What I thought, half expecting a bunch of "don't you think it's time to get a new PC?" responses instead. I just got a new 8TB external HD that'll work on my ancient PC's USB 2.0 ports, but until I build a new PC with all the new bells and whistles, it would be nice to have speeds that do justice to its capabilities on my old PC for only $10-$15. It's mostly going to be a media server, and might also serve as my DVR drive if fast enough.

Another $30/GB deal. Yawn. When are the $25/GB deals coming (for 2GB drives)?
...it's $0.15 per GB, a TB is 1024GB, of which this drive has 2. This is a good price.

Edit: I failed at math and learned a new distinction between TB and TiB. Thanks Slickdeals community!

How does this compare to the WD 2TB Elements Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBU6Y0020BBK-WESN ?

I'm mainly going to use this for my PS4.
