Rocstor 500GB for 86 Bucks

rocstar-225

Have been shopping around for a 500GB hard drive for backups, and stumbled upon this Rocstor Rocpro 225 at Amazon.com for $86.32, plus there is free shipping since it’s over $25.  I’ve heard great things about the reliability of this drive so this is a very good price (retails at $147).  Buy.com has it for $98 (which seemed cheap before I found it at Amazon).

Looks like Amazon as 2 left as of today–after I ordered one :).
