Still a bit too much. These were $130 on Black Friday, and some people were able to snag them for as low as $115 with a coupon at Staples.

I’d wait until they’re back down to the $130 price.

Just be aware that these drives cannot be extracted from the external housing and installed in a notebook.

Unlike the common 9.5mm notebook drives and the original 12.5mm 750gb and 1tb notebook drives is instead 15mm thick.

The original application for the 2TB 2.5" drive was in an AV (video surveilance)
system.

if you just want it as an external… personally with the prices of 1tb externals I’d rather have two 1tb externals… a single 2tb external is to me an invitation to disaster through the “one basket” effect.
