[QUOTE=alan1476;2717467]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.
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).
