Buy a 500 GB Portable Hard Drive for $49.99
If you’re looking for a great deal on a portable hard drive, here you are. Amazon is offering a Western Digital My Passport 500GB portable USB 2.0 powered hard drive for just $49.99 with free shipping, which is 58% off the retail price for the “Robot Design”, named so because of the funky robot case artwork.
This is Western Digitals smallest portable hard drive, measuring 4.3″ x 3.2″ x 0.6″ which is about an inch wider than an iPhone or iPod touch. This would be a great gift for the holidays or a solid addition to any portable computing setup.
These portable hard drives are particularly cool because they are powered by your USB 2.0 port, which eliminates the need to plug the drive into an AC outlet (although an AC cable is offered for those with limited USB options).
