This wasn't a great deal last year, but it is right now. Especially because you can pull the WD drive, and use it in a NAS.

Man, technology is crazy!

I just posted that screenshot with a telephone! We all need to step back occasionally and think about stuff like this. I know I tend to take it for granted sometimes how easy it is to be lazy these days. It sounds complicated, but really wasn't. I'm basically typing and posting pictures on a handheld computer that would have been the size of my living room 50 years ago. And somebody else on the other side of the world can look at it if they choose. Weird. I must be tired. Good night.

P.S. Please save one of those hard drives for me until payday, which is tomorrow.

My wife got me this drive for Christmas but mine is 3TB! Big Grin
And, It was $99 on sale at Staples.
(I found the deal and told her this is what to buy me, getting the deal was more important than the surprise factor)

When you remove the drive from the enclosure it has a sata connection that you can use as an internal drive?
