One of Best Buy's deals of the day features the WD Easystore 1TB external portable hard drive on sale for $44.99. That's a very low price for a 1TB drive. You can also find it going for this deal price through the Best Buy eBay store. This is normally an $85 drive where its usual low when it goes on sale is about $65. The price won't last forever, though, as these deals get replaced each morning, so grab it while you can.
The Easystore is just that... easy. It's a simple portable hard drive that you can use to store and transfer data, whether that'd be music, movies, photos, or video games. The 1TB of space is all there for you to use, and it's in a convenient device that won't let you down. Since its portable, you can take it with you as well, so it can be a great storage companion for your laptop.
Connect via USB 3.0 for an easy-to-use interface that is super compatible with a wide range of devices. It's also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 just in case you need to plug into an older port. You won't get quite the same transfer speeds, but it will definitely still work for you. The drive is also powered by the USB hub so you only need one cable to connect the drive and get it working instead of say some drives that require both a USB cable and a power adapter.
WD also provides some free software and automatic backup options. Use the drive to back up some of the files on your computer and use WD's software to schedule this effort. It will do the backing up in the background using minimal resources so you can keep using your PC. The WD Drive Utilities software also gives you options to help manage, configure, and diagnose your drive.
