Today you can grab the WD Elements 16TB external hard drive on sale for $259.99 through Newegg, and you get that discount by using the coupon code SSBRA832 during checkout. This is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen. It’s over $40 better than Amazon’s current price and $10 better than it has ever been there. The sale is part of Newegg’s Shell Shocker deals, though, which means it is a temporary price drop that may sell out and will definitely expire by this time tomorrow.
The connection is USB 3.0. That explains its wide compatibility, and it also allows for super fast data transfers up to 5 Gbps. With all that space, you’ll want some fast speeds so you can transfer everything as quick as possible.
Use this hard drive as a backup. It should be large enough for your entire system. Since it’s not internal, it can serve as a secondary place to keep all your data safe. Or you can just use it as a central location for all of your media. Keep all your photos and movies in one place.
