Even as we shift to cloud-powered everything, there’s a need for local storage. You’ve got ever-expanding music and photo collections, to say nothing of all that sweet video you’re shooting with your new quadcopter. Heck, maybe you’re still old-school when it comes to movies, ripping Blu-ray and DVD discs for the ultimate home-theater PC.
This stuff needs a home. And homes don’t get much bigger than this: For a limited time, Newegg has the Samsung D3 Station 4TB USB 3.0 hard drive for $119.99, shipped. That’s after applying coupon code EMCPBWB225 at checkout.

Four terabytes. Four. In my younger days, I worked for a mail-order computer company, and I remember vividly the day we started offering a 250-megabyte drive for $250. It was a big deal. /memorylane
Anyway, the D3 Station is your basic monolithic desktop drive (meaning it requires its own power supply), one with a USB 3.0 interface (natch — can you imagine trying to fill this thing up over USB 2.0?!) and preloaded backup software. It’s not clear whether this last is for Windows, Mac, or both, but the drive itself is compatible with both.
