You only need the code shown, no need to checkout with v.me, I went through checkout without confirming and that was the case. Still $107 w/o v.me.

I missed out on the Ratuken deal earlier this week getting the 1TB for $59, and was pretty bummed. I'm thinking to pick-up this one. The price per GB is slightly less, but of course the price is $48 more.

Will it hurt to have to plugged in to a powered usb hub?

Wait until its shipped and see what price is charged.

keep in mind, as has been said before, these drives have a proprietary connection inside, that means you cannot take the drive out and use this with a regular sata connection.

No. I tried this as well as a few other drives and devices with my Nexus 7 tablet, just to see if they worked. I used an OTG cable and an app called Nexus Media Importer, on a stock ROM (no root). I connected the drive using an old mini Targus hub with an external power adapter and it worked fine. I did not try streaming, just copying files to open them on the tablet.

The tablet was not able to provide enough power to run the drive directly, but with the externally powered hub, it worked smoothly.

The drive works fine with an externally-powered hub on our regular laptops.

Re the V.me discount, I used the V.me checkout, but I don't care for their notice that they will keep my credit number on file, so I generated a one-time use credit card number (Shopsafe program, Bank of America). I hope it goes through smoothly.

ETA Just to note, I really like this drive. I'm old enough to still marvel at being able to hold 2TB of storage in the palm of my hand. The drive is about the size of two decks of playing cards side-by-side.

I jumped on this one and did the V.me checkout just to follow the rules. Of course, I used my AMEX card in order to extend warranty by 1 year (I love this about about AMEX). I got my 1% FatCash too.

D'oh! I just ordered one from Staples last week. Price matched it to Amazon at $129.99. Thought that was a good price. Oh well, used rewards to pay for it, not cash. But I have to say, this is a really good price.

Great case that is worth considering buying for it: http://www.amazon.com/Western-Digital-WDBGRD0000NBK-NASN-Nomad-R...

Thanks OP. V.me was an awful experience, if it was any less that $20 I would have given up on it. Ultimately it worked, after about 5 tries in different browsers/computers.

The coupon code (VMESAVESU20) is not working. Please tell me if you know any working code.
