The WD Elements 10TB USB 3.0 desktop hard drive (opens in new tab) is down to $159.99 on Amazon. This drive averages around $187 and the drop to $160 is just a dollar shy of its lowest price ever. It rarely drops far below $180 and when it does it either sells out or returns to a higher price within a few days, so don't wait for too long. This price is matching a limited-time deal at B&H (opens in new tab), so we expect it won't last too long at Amazon either. You can also score a saving on the 3TB drive (opens in new tab).
