Bestbuy has the Seagate 8TB External Hub drive on sale again for $199 this time. so a bit more expensive but not to bad, if you missed out before.

On sale now!

https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/se ... e_Hardware

Says its an early BD deal, but deal expires on the 24th? So maybe a better deal on the 26th?

I'm too weary of seagate . They got a very bad rep that's warranted. WD didn't have any under $120 deals during BF

Best Buy having the 3TB WD Passport at $120 right now is lame. It's always goes "on sale" at that price.

Apparently, they've been doing a better job with their internals recently, or so I've heard. That said, WD's pricing is no longer at a premium: I picked up a WD 1 TB Blue for $49.99 during BF week.

Anyhoo, is it even worth getting a ready-made external, as opposed to an enclosure?

Hi guys, I bought the WD Passport 2TB for $99.99 from BB yesterday. Does anyone know of a better deal (more space for the same price or lower cost for same space) either right now or that there should be something a lot better on Boxing Day? Wondering if I should open the box, since BB apparently doesn't take back computer components if opened.

I don't care about colour, and I wouldn't be opposed to spending maybe another $10-15 if it'll add a significant amount of extra storage to it. I do realise if I go a decent amount higher that I can get more GB per dollar spent, I'm just trying to keep it around the $100 or lower mark, but if there's something really close that adds a lot of space for only a bit of money, I'd be ok with it.

I've seen 4TB for $119.99 a week or two ago. BF u may be able to get a 2TB for 79.99-89.99

I'd not open it.

Canada Computers had WD Blue 1TB internal HDD for 49.99 during Black Friday. I'm planning on mounting it in an external enclosure.

I bought a 4TB external (which I immediately shucked) for 109.99 from Best Buy sometime in August or September. They can get pretty low in price.

Where should I be looking for this kind of price? Best Buy? Or was it somewhere else? I have been out of the computer component buying space for like half a decade now, don't know where to look anymore, lol. NCIX used to have the best deals back in the day, and they're gone now.

The Source had this for $83.99 but the sale ended on December 14th. I picked one up and was surprised at the low price because not even Amazon had, at any time, a price matching or lower than this.

Smart man. May as well flush 8TB of data down toilet. Seagates have a very bad rep.

So avoid Seagate and go towards WD? Haven't bought a new HD in ages so no idea what to get or avoid. Need to get an external for my son's Xbox One, any particular brand or size recommended?

it looks like some of the black friday flyers are out now.

is there much of a difference between these two drives?
https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/we ... 82129.aspx?
https://www.amazon.ca/Elements-Portable ... 257&sr=8-1

sort of hoping for the 4tb/100$ deal that was on for black friday but haven't noticed anything in the flyers yet. my big project for january is going thru all of our old vhs and hi-8 home movies and backing them up to digital, so i'm looking for an external hard drive to store all of that data on.

Is my passport better than WD element in terms of long term storage?

I'm surprised by such crappy deals this year:(
Looks like Costco's everyday price of $136.99 for WD My Passport 4TB is the best one around..
