I just got one at $79.99. When I used the link from the OP, it went into the cart at that price, but if I clicked on other options (size, color) it reverted to the $129 price when I went back to this one. When I went back to the OP link again, it worked fine. Thanks, OP!

Yep. Same for me.  Direct link is $79.99 for black, once you start clicking on the colors it becomes $129.99.  Just use OP's link and you're good @ $79.99.

NICE DEAL!

Question. Does this need external power or does it power with the USB connection?

rated:
Under specs the power source is the AC adapter but under external hard drive type is says portable. Not sure how this is portable.

It's a 3.5" drive inside, so it needs an independent power source (i.e. AC adapter). The drive's built in (2 port) USB hub, according to some user reviews, is a powered hub.  If that's accurate, it should be able to power portable (2.5") drives.

Here's a youtube video from one of the BB user reviews:

I bought this online this morning (before seeing this) and brought it home. Plugged it into my Xbox One and seems to work perfectly. But I too had the problem of the price going up once I clicked on different colors. If you back out and go to it again, the black will show up for $80.
It looks like you need the AC adapter for it to work.  Won't run off USB alone.  Great deal.
