, that's $0.03/GB, $20 under our November mention of a new unit, and the least expensive 1.5TB USB 3.0 hard drive we've seen. (It's also $54 less than the lowest total price we could find for a new unit today.) It features a 64MB buffer and 2GB of free cloud backup for six months. Deal ends February 19.
A 1-year warranty applies, although it's unclear who supports it.
