with free shipping
($0.03/GB). That's the lowest total price we've seen for a 1.5TB 3.0Gb/s hard drive in over a year. (It's also $37 under the best price we could find for a new unit elsewhere.) This "green" 3.5" drive purportedly consumes less power compared to other models and features a 64MB cache and IntelliPower rpm. A 90-day Western Digital warranty applies.
