Storage capacities continue to grow, and that’s great if you have a need for as much capacity as is absolutely possible. We still remember when the 100MB barrier was broken, and now you can get your very own 10TB drive for less than $200. That’s pretty amazing to us.

The drive in question is a Western Digital Elements Desktop drive, and it features USB 3.0 for fast transfer speeds, too. It’s backwardly compatible, as you would expect, but the real star of the show is the spinning disk that lives inside.

Normally you’d expect to have to hand over almost $300 to get in on this kind of drive, but right now thanks to the folks at Amazon, one can be yours for less than $200.

Whether you are using the drive as a place to house an extensive Plex library, or just making sure your photos are safe and sound, this drive will be able to play host to so many files it’s hard to really know what to use it for.

While anyone with a photography or videography business may want to use something in SSD form for speed, the sheer amount of storage on offer here makes it a great archival option.

If you need a new drive, you just found it. Some of the features include:

  • USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 compatibility
  • Fast data transfers. WD quality inside and out
  • High-capacity Add-on storage
  • Plug-and-play ready for Windows PCs
  • System compatibility is formatted ntfs for windows 10, 8.1 and 7. Reformatting may be required for other operating systems
