I ordered one to go along with my Surface. My current external is a heavy clunker and needs to be plugged into an outlet when being used. This one can run off of USB power alone.

This. The 2TB seagate backup plus slim is a better deal (it's been 79-89 a few times actually). Plus you can remove the drive inside to use it internally.

For those who arent aware, WD portable drives have the USB board soldered onto the hard drive. If you break the connector or it fries for some reason, bye bye to the entire drive. Other drives like Seagate, you can just put it inside another enclosure or internally via SATA.

Been looking for a cheap external since Boxing Day and haven't seen anything close to 2TB for $80 since.
