At $89.99 that would put it at around $18 per TB. Still not as good as sale priced larger capacity external 3.5 USB desktop drives. but better than the $20 to $21 or so of the typical sale priced WD portable; Easystore, My Passport and Element drives. Will be interesting to see what others say about this particular drive considering the number of folks around these parts who dislike (or hate) Seagate drives in general.

For anyone interested past slickdeal discussions on this Costco drive.

Edit to add: Past posts in earlier deal discussions, like this post, indicate the drive (at least in the past) was shuckable. Some, like this post, likewise claim this drive is SMR which may account for the horrible speeds some claim they have.
I bought this drive on sale for $65 about 2 years ago(it was the last item on shelf) I shucked it (it is thicker than usual 2.5" drive) and put it in my pc. No issues with it.

Thanks for pre-answering my question:
1) is it shuckable. I like better than 3.5" for power/heat/size
2) size: larger than standard 95mm, prob 12.5mm

I'll be buying 1. Thanks!

I have one of these from the last Costco sale. It's been solid so far, no issues. Been using it formatted as an APFS Time Machine volume on my iMac on Big Sur, works great.

Usually there's a "non-member surcharge", if you order online.

Have had issues with Seagate external. Never tried portable from Seagate.

Hope it has encryption software like WD
