The WD My Passport Ultra 1TB USB 3.0 external hard drive is down to $59.99 at Best Buy. This drive used to sell for around $60 more regularly, but it has been selling between $65 and $70 or more since last year. It is going for that much at retailers like B&H and even more at Newegg.
Today's price drop is part of Best Buy's deals of the day, and the sale features a few different WD drives. All of these drives, including the SanDisk Extreme 1TB portable SSD, are down to low prices. But the deals won't last long either, so find the one that works for you and grab it while you can.
Take it with you
Uses USB 3.0 for speedy transfer speeds up to 5 Gbps. Backwards compatible with USB 2.0. Has optional cloud backup, password protection, 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption, and automatic backup options using included software.
$70.00 $10 off
The My Passport Ultra has USB 3.0 compatibility, which means it's super easy to use and connect to your computer. That also means it has super speedy transfer speeds up to 5Gbps. Of course, it's also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 if that's the only option you have available, but you won't get transfer speeds nearly as fast. The drive is USB-powered, too, so you don't need a secondary power adapter or anything like that to get it to work.
With a 1TB capacity, you get plenty of space for storing documents, photos, music, and whatever other data you want to keep with you. Since it's portable, you can keep this data close to you all the time and easily transfer it between systems.
WD includes a lot of options for keeping your data safe. For one thing, there's an option for cloud backup that both makes your data redundant and maximizes your accessibility. The drive can also be password protected with 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption. Setup automatic backup options using the included WD software, too, so you can make sure your regular computer's hard drive is always backed up.
