[Staples/Microcenter] 3TB Drive price match at Staples for $89.99

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I think this deal has been posted about it being available at Microcenter but Staples has this drive and will price match. With my employee discount i got 2 for $170.

In case anyone is wondering what kind of drive it is, it's a WD Green.

I never had a 5400RPM drive. Are they fine for storing music/movies/etc? I'm thinking about making my 1TB primarily for games and keep the 3TB for multi-media purposes.

A 3TB 5400rpm can be faster in some metrics than many 7200rpm drives.
Data density is pretty important

They are really good. I got mine almost a month ago from the same staples pricematch~microcenter. Instantly set it up and it went without a hitch. Only problem was I forgot to disable intellipark so my Load/Unload cycle count kinda went to 1.7k after a few hours. I owned previous green drives and have good experience with them. They're 5400 rpm drives but they're not that slow.

Price match also works with the coupons (like $25 off 75 and $30 off 80). (http://www.cn-usa.com/?cmd=_sale&item=staples3080)

Just got my HDD (after tax, coupon, free shipping) for 64.04 (+$3.49 for the coupon)

Note: the coupon I got from that site expired today, so be ready to use it when you buy it!

Pricematching with coupons won't be allowed when go to a store but it works online. Just a caution.
