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!

Just use OP's link and you're good @ $79.99.

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

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

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.
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.
