    I'm holding out hoping to see the 5TB models come close to this price over the next couple weeks.

    5tb too much stake on a failed drive - stick to lower storage risks. All my Seagate's have worked fine. I prefer Seagate over my WD experience.

    I agree, the reviews of the 5TB drives are poor compared to the the 4TB. The ventilation of these drives is very poor so keep it in the shade.

    If we're talking storage of something in which you own the digital rights (games, music, movies), then it isn't a bad device to risk it on... especially if you're saving money over buying new devices. If you own the media, you can simply re-download it again.
    External drives should never be a backup location, IMO.

    ^ Externals are the best backup location because once you unplug them they are offline, not subject to power surge, fire, flood, theft, virus, etc so long as they are kept in a secure location. Hackers can breach a cloud but they can't touch an unplugged external storage device without physical access.

    "Clouds" where you own something, come and go. You can't depend on the data being around long term and if you ever need that data it takes a lot longer to get it off a cloud.

    Then again some would argue that magnetic tape or optical storage is a better option due to longevity, but for home use they are more expensive and time intensive.

    In the end it's up to you... but using HDD for storage, I have files over 25 years old still redundantly backed up. To me that's the key, don't ever store anything in only one location or on one device, and check and refresh the data every few years. Don't just leave it on a HDD and expect it to work a decade later instead of copying it over to a newer HDD.

    Great deal. I've been waiting for 4TBs to start breaking the $100 barrier. Looks like we're finally getting there.
