Same price at Amzon now

Good drive but needs proprietary cable, so much for standardization.

I have this drive. It uses a STANDARD USB 3.0 cable which is included.

USB on one end, some strange connector on the other.

STANDARD USB 3.0 cable

has same connectors as the cables designated for Toshiba. Why? Because Standard USB 3.0 cables are compatible with this Toshiba drive.

Staples has this in silver for $75 as well, and it stacked with 25 off 75 for me (with filler- used $4 paper towels).

If you don't have the coupon, this obviously is a great deal as well. Hope it's a good drive!

Good drive, but cant be used for backup

Please put the hookah down, step away from the keyboard and come out with your hands up !

Anyone knows what drive is inside and if the connector are soldered?? Can it be gutted for laptop use??

Since it's only a 5400rpm 8Mb Cache drive, I wouldn't use it as an internal.

Get this instead for $49.99:

OR this for $65.69 + $2.69 S/H, use code HEARTBEAT for the price, expires today but they always have codes for 10-15% off:

This is probably a 12.5mm thick drive as the external case is the same 0.65" thickness of the 1.5TB external drive. The typical 9.5mm 750GB is 0.53" thick. (3mm difference)

When someone opened one from a previous deal it had an SATA connector.

The 1.5tb at best buy is a bit better deal IMO.

This 1tb drive is same price there as well.

Code appears dead.

Ya gotta move much quicker than that around here for a deal!!!!!!!!!!!!
