Western Digital 500GB My Passport Essential at Best Buy.

Went to my local Best Buy here in the St. Louis area. I was wanting a portable USB 3.0 HDD and BB had it on sale for $59.99. Amazon wants $79.99. All they had left was the blue model, but I don't care about the color.

The HDD is VERY fast when hooked up to the USB 3.0 port on the MBA.

I actually want blue and have been waiting for a sale. However, your link shows price of $69.99, not $59.99? Which price did you actually pay?

I've got a silver coloured 1TB, had it for a while, it's very good. Would like to buy another one but they're more expensive now than what I paid for it 9 months ago!

That is because the sale is over. He was referring to last week. Itll go on sale again though.

I bought it Sunday afternoon. If the sale is over, then I apologize about the link. Still, even at $69.99, that's le$$ than Amazon.

FYI, I was told by a Best Buy employee that Best Buy will match Amazon's prices.
