[Staples] Staples - 1TB My Passport USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive, Black $69.99

http://www.staples.ca/ENG/Catalog/cat_s ... xedcode=WW

Just got the email flyer and this stood out starting tomorrow (Dec 29)

I paid $50 for a 500GB for my wife last month for work and a Seagate.

2 year warranty, I think I might pick this up for my laptop since I only have 160GB hard drive.

Dont shoot the messenger if this isnt a hot deal, but price wise seems to be pretty good

Not the same beast. One I posted is a portable one that doesnt need a power supply to run it. So yes the storage size is bigger but so in the foot print and use

Why do you compare a 3.5" to a 2.5" harddrive?

Seriously ppl, if you're going to comment, at least have your facts straight! How can you compare a 2.5" portable to a 3.5" monster that needs A/C???

So you think it's worth paying double per GB and having a slower drive just to not have to use a power supply?

I thought for a portable drive the make and size was pretty good for $70. PozzyD seems to take it upon himself to hate me this morning for some reason.

Members like that makes me wonder why I post deals at all

Bestbuy a similar one that includes a case for the same price. I'm not sure what the difference is. They are both WD and both USB 3.0

Hopefully with staples it stays in stock. Who knows with them.

I second OP on this deal, this is a pretty hot price for a 2.5' USB 3.0 enable 1 TB portable drive.

I also saw it in my email and I for one will be jumping on it once it goes live.

For everyone else, make sure to check the RFD staples coupons thread for coupons.

Thanks OP!

Not having to use a power supply and having half the weight is valuable. If size and weight didn't matter, Ultrabooks and Macbook Airs would not exist, since specs (and weight) are typically higher on a traditional laptop.

Some people do travel you know. $70 is about the going rate for portable external drives of this size. I for one wouldn't ever consider getting a desktop drive for travel use.
