$100 3TB Western Digital External HDD @Costco (California)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I didn't pick up any info about it besides knowing it was a Western Digital External 3Tb for only $100 with USB 3.0. I'm thinking of running back to Costco when they open in the morning tomorrow, they had a quite a few but that just seems insanely cheap right now. Any opinions on it?
I'm sorry I don't have the serial or type or external that it is.... completely just bypassed my brain apparently while I was there??

This was in California at the Woodland Costco (North of Sacramento)
I don't see the product on the costco website at all either?

Probably a 5400 rpm drive. And while cheap, yes you really have to consider that most externals are cheap for a reason. Especially one at 3TB.

That's what I was thinking about. I mean, if there was a problem with it I don't believe Costco would be selling such a product anyway... Especially with their return policy being as simple as "It looks weird." to get a refund.

but lots of people like to talk crap becuase they are "slow" but who cares for storage drive

Go for it. Going to ask my friend who works there is they have any at his store for $100 (In NC).

3 days after the big price hike, I saw a lot of Seagate 1TB 7400RPM drives for only 65 bucks each at our Best Buy. Snapped up all 4 they had there and sold two a week ago. I also got a good many points on my Best Buy card that I used to buy a PC game.

costco has an extremely lenient return policy. if it doesn't work for some reason..or you can't flip it for a profit, you can take it right back. one time i saw a dude returning his 5 yr. old pool table that was used and ridiculously abused. got a full refund.

I'm just saying that typically you buy an eternal and it's extremely slow. I paid for a 1tb USB 3.0 and the drive is 5400 RPM, I'd expect (At the time) at harddrive that cost me 80 dollars would at-least be 7200rpm.
