Newegg Canada: Samsung D3 Station 5TB Hard Drive Was $250 | Now $150
Newegg Canada has a really sweet deal on a monster external hard drive for your computer. Honestly, if you own a computer (desktop or laptop) you need an external hard drive. When your internal hard drive blows (usually the thing that goes) you want to have all your important pictures, documents, videos, passwords, bookmarks, and everything backed up on an external drive. This huge Samsung D3 Station 5TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive (STSHX-D501TDB) is on sale from $249.99 down to $159.99. Use coupon code CEMCAWKX45 to take an extra $10 off your order thus bringing the external hard drive down to $149.99. Shipping is an extra $5.99.
I have a certain rule of thumb: a great hard drive deal is around $30 per TB so this 5TB hard drive at $150 is right on the money. The last 5TB hard drive deal we featured on Bargainmoose was a one day deal on a Seagate for $160. I figured the most apt price comparison would be to ignore brand and just price compare the cheapest 5TB hard drives at other online retailers:
- $184 @ Amazon Canada
- $219.99 @ NCIX.com
- $189.92 @ Staples Canada
- $249.99 @ The Source Canada
- $184.99 @ Best Buy Canada
As you can see, this is currently the cheapest 5TB external hard drive out there by a good $30+ dollars.
Space, this hard drive is all about giving you tons of space. This is great for the digital hoarder like me who keeps every picture, video, and document ever made and sometimes even duplicates (and triplicates). You would be surprised how easy it is to fill up a hard drive these days just with family stuff: especially photos and videos. They take up a lot of room to begin with. Add on the children's homework, art projects, your books and tax documents, and then plenty of games and you need an external drive just to store it all. With this hard drive, you can keep a full back up of your computer for emergencies and store extra stuff that can no longer fit on your computer.
Essentially, this is piece of mind in a little square box.
