Amazon Pushing Out 500GB Western Digital External Drives For $50

The computer storage space keeps getting cheaper. Amazon is currently offering a very capable Western Digital My Passport Essential 500GB portable USB 2.0 External HDD for the very cheap price of $49.99 with no shipping costs.

If you consider that Western Digital themselves were selling the same units for $10 more during their own sale and the fact that you’ll get free shipping, then this is the deal you have to have, just in time for Christmas.

No word on how long the sale will go for, but at those prices we would recommend heading over to Amazon as quickly as possible to ensure you get your hands on stock before it’s gone.
