Grab the 4TB WD My Book hard drive on sale for a super low price of $55

Need a new place to store all your media? WD is going a little nuts with the deals today. Grab the WD My Book 4TB portable external hard drive (opens in new tab) for $54.99. This is a drive that has mostly sold for around $100 for the last year, and the lowest price it reached before today was $90. The drop to $55 is a killer deal you should take advantage of. It is temporarily out of stock but you should be able to order at this price and secure it for when the drive comes back.

That's not the only drive on sale today, either. The WD My Cloud 8TB EX2 ultra network-attached storage (opens in new tab) is down to $179.99 from a street price of $400. It is temporarily out of stock, but you can still order at that price. Some of the other deals we've seen today have since sold out, but they could return if you're interested (opens in new tab).

This hard drive connects via USB 3.0 but is also backwards compatible with previous generations. It's compatible with Windows 7 and up, but it will need reformatting to work with Mac. It comes with WD Backup software for auto backups of your data, password protection for hardware encryption, and a three-year warranty.

He was there for the first Prime Day and has braved the full force of Black Friday. If you cut him, he bleeds savings. But don't try it for real. That's a metaphor.
