Mass Storage for Under $150

Pros: Lots of space, fast for a mech drive, 3 Yr Warranty

Cons: None

I was recently in the need of a HD and happened to be in Best Buy. While I was checking out the hard drive section I seen a 5TB Internal on sale for $140. I quickly pulled out my phone and researched this drive and couldn't really find any bad or good info on. For 140, I said what the hell I will give it a try. WOW!!!! This drive has been amazing. First off the packaging is second to none. I feel I could actually throw this drive about 20 feet in the box and it would still work without issue. One of the best packaged drives I have seen. On to the performance. I have been getting 130MB/s+ Reads and 100MB/s+ Writes. Its doesn't seem to run too hot either. Overall lots of storage...
