Right now at Best Buy, you can grab a fast 8TB of 7,200-RPM HDD storage for a mere $179.99. That's far less than what you would pay for the drive inside if you bought it separately!

Most of WD’s external hard drives at this capacity and speed sell for upwards of $200, so you can be certain of a good deal here. It’s also as easy as plug and play — just connect this to your computer via USB 3.0 and get up to 5Gbps of throughput.

Plus, you can make the most of this drive with the included software package that has utilities and backup capabilities. The drive also has a two-year warranty, making it an overall powerful and low-risk solution for any of your storage problems.

    Really? Up to 5Gbps? Are you selling a USB adapter or an external hard drive? What 7200 RPM external drive do you know that even gets 3Gbps? Very false and misleading claim. By this logic if they had used a USB 3.2 Gen 2, we could have gotten up to 10Gbps throughout!!! Man we’re missing...wish they hadn’t cheaped out...

    This is only $10 dollars below the list price. $140 used to be the normal selling price for drives like this, and they were regularly on sale for $120. Now you're lucky if you can find a used 8 TB for $140.
