For subscribers to NewEgg's mailing list, the blue variant of that drive is available for the same price with the promo code EMCTYVA36.

What's the difference between the two, shuckability?

I shucked this one to put in a TiVo bolt and still working great after 1 month. Same price at Costco back then.

Really nice color, not sure whether it will be too much storage room.

My collection of family photos/videos are growing exponentially, currently at 2.2TB, especially with the recent switch to 24MP RAW files and 1080/4K videos. Together with backup of the documents, the whole thing is approaching 3TB. Will need to get this one to replace my 4TB drive.

It's exterior is blue instead of red. FYI, color coded product lines is WD's thing, not Seagate's.

I don't know the relative shuckability of any portable drives. I haven't had a need to internally mount a drive I had bought as an external drive.

(For whatever it's worth, I buy Seagate external HDDs and WD internal HDDs.)

Got the 8TB for the same price from Staples last week.

Cm'on people... this is supposed to be a hot deals site. Be prepared to work a little for the decent deals.

Bet you didn't get an 8tb *portable* external drive (laptop size). Meaning 2.5" drive that doesn't require external power adaptor.

3.5" drive that requires external power (and a lot larger physical size), I can believe.

Same for just about every drive imaginable. Sometimes drives fail, there's no way around it. Just backup things twice and buy a warranty.
