This Cheap Portable Hard Drive Is Your Deal of the Day

Everyone needs a portable hard drive, especially if you're rocking a tiny SSD in your laptop. But unlike lots of consumer technology, you can't count on prices to fall indefinitely: before the October 2011 flood in Thailand, you could pick up a 2TB USB 2.0 portable hard drive for less than $100. We haven't seen prices like that since, but this deal from Adorama comes close. It's a USB 3.0 Western Digital portable HD with an advertised 1TB capacity for $65. That's about seven cents per GB, and it's a great deal. [Adorama]

Here Are Your Springtime Shoes For a Song

Lots of stylish gentlemen around New York City are rocking the Beeswax Leather Clark Desert Boot. I understand; they were basically the only shoes I wore during college. They look smart, they're extremely comfortable, and they're relatively cheap. Relatively being the key word — they're usually around $100. But right now from Amazon there's a way you can get a pair for $64.

Right now, the Beeswax Leather Desert Boot is listed at $80, which is already a solid price. But if you head to this link and sign up for Amazon clothing emails, they'll email you a code that takes 20% off your next purchase. My code (probably one-use only) looked like this: R6J9-PX8CDE-WHEEYR. That brings these shoes down to $64, which is a straight steal for shoes that you won't take off for the next six months.

Note: Although these boots are listed as narrow, it's probably just a glitch. Some guys on Reddit found out that Clarks doesn't even make narrow desert boots, so you're probably good. Also, if you don't get a code the first time, try another email address.

This Is a Very Solid Price for a Very Solid Projector

Advertisement

The Optoma HD20 is a 1080p DLP projector that's a great value at full price. In fact, it's Wirecutter's pick for the best projector under $1000. But it's an even better value today. It's been dropping in price recently, and it landed at $686. That's only the third time ever it's dropped below $700, and the other two times were for less than a day. So yeah, if you were looking for a good cheap projector, you should jump on this. [Amazon via the always excellent Wirecutter Deals]
