The deals just keep on coming, and for that we’re extremely grateful. If you’re in the market for a new external hard drive, then you’re about to be grateful too. That’s because right now, the folks at Amazon are selling a WD Elements drive in 8TB configuration for just $149.99. That’s around $30 off of its normal selling price.

Storage of the spinning disk variety has plummeted in price over the recent years, and being able to pick 8TB of storage up at this price is mind blowing to any of us who were buying drives in the megabytes when we were growing up. This is a great drive with more storage than most people are likely to need any time soon, so why not pick one up while the price is so great?

This drive comes with a USB 3.0 port around the back for nice and fast transfer speeds, and it’s a relatively small box to find at home or on your desk, too, with measurements of 5.31 x 1.89 x 6.53 in. The spiel for the drive on offer reads:

WD elements desktop storage with USB 3.0 offers reliable, high-capacity, add-on storage, fast data transfer rates and universal connectivity with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 devices. The sleek design features up to 8TB capacity plus WD quality and reliability.

If you’d prefer more or less storage then there are options ranging from 4TB all the way up to 10TB, although thanks to this deal we think this is the sweet spot that is hard to beat.

So what are you waiting for?
