Keep a watch on slickdeals. Every so often Bestbuy has an 8TB (8!!) WDC external drive on sale for $130. Like this:

It's got a RED (or a white-label RED) 3.5" internal disk in it. Lots of people buy these and shuck the drive to install in a desktop computer. I've got 5 empty cases lying around. ;-)
