This is a great price for 3,000 gigabytes worth of storage.

Is this deal for me?

Best Buy has the WD Red 3TB internal desktop hard drive for $89.99. This same hard drive is $105 at B&H.

This is the retail version of the Red 3TB hard drive. It's usually more expensive than a bare drive because it comes with documentation, mounting screws, and things like that. With this deal, the price is actually even better than the more common and more popular bare drive, which is currently $110 at Best Buy.

This is a great hard drive for anyone building their own computer or even setting up a network-attached storage device, like the Synology DS216+II. It uses a standard Serial ATA interface to connect, has a 64MB internal cache, transfer rates up to 6 Gbps, and has a 5400 rpm speed.

All new WD hard drives come with a two-year warranty as well. It has 4.7 stars based on 46 user reviews. The bare drive, which is the exact same thing with less fancy boxes, has 4.4 stars based on more than 4,200 user reviews.

TL;DR

  • What makes this deal worth considering? - The WD Red is the go-to hard drive for network-attached storage. It's extremely reliable and easy to use. This price is one of the best available right now, and one of the best we've ever seen.
  • Things to know before you buy! - Like I said above, the main thing you need to know is that this is the retail version of the more common bare drive. This one comes with documentation and a fancy box. The bare drive is usually the way to go because it's cheaper, but right now this deal is better.
