Costco has the next gen of that exact external for a few bucks more. This is the Ultra, comes with a case and faster transfers.

The price is actually $99.99. A couple of days ago, when you originally posted, I tried to test it, and it kept coming up as $99.99 when checking out, even though the item page had a total of $91.49. Now they’ve corrected that. So, $91.49 was a mistake.

A $30 difference is more than a “few bucks”, but it would be worth it for the longer 3-year warranty (normal warranty on WD portables is 2-years).

And how can transfers be faster when they are both USB 3.0? Seems like you misinterpreted some empty marketing-speak.

The built-in hardware encryption is nice, though it may only work with Windows and not OS X or Linux (I hate when that’s the case).
