I bought this hard drive for around $55. It is totally worth it, and then some. It's a very good deal, even at the regular price. Western Digital is a very reputable brand with plenty of experience. It's not technically 1tb. It's measured where 1tb is 1000, gb, not 1024. So you don't have 1000+ gb. You get 931gb, but that's fine with me. Works great, and I have not have any problems yet. It has 1 white activity light on the back, 1 power jack, and 1 mini-usb port. Yes, it comes with its own cables. I had to plug it in twice because my computer didn't recognize it the first time for one reason or another. Not a big deal. It even came early, via FedEx. Two entire days before it was supposed to show up. I strongly recommend getting one.
