Amazon  has the Seagate 4TB BarraCuda Internal HDD for $105 right now. Lowest price ever according to The Tracktor.

It's SATAIII, 64MB cache, model#: ST4000DM005

EDIT: As noted below, this is a 5400rpm drive. (as opposed to 7200rpm). Consider this a good backup drive (alternative to WD Blue/Green series), but don't use it as a main OS/system drive. Also warranty is 2 years.

Be aware that this is a 5900 rpm drive. Most mainstream drives are 7200rpm. That makes this drive slower. Not a big deal for a back up drive, but you will definitely feel the wait if you use it as a primary system drive.

  No, most mainstream drives are 5400-5900 RPM.

7200 RPM are reserved for the top of the line models anymore.  For example WD Black = 7200 RPM, but the Blue's are 5900
