WD's new PiDirve 314GB costs just $45.81 - but it's currently available for $31.42 - celebrating Pi. The 7mm-high drive is based on the WD Blue range of HDDs, which are found in many budget and mid-range laptops and PCs. The difference here is that the interface has been modified from SATA to USB so that it can connect and work with the Raspberry Pi.

 

WD adds that it customized the PiDrive 314GB so that it would "reduce the electrical power load of the hard drive on Raspberry Pi while still maintaining sufficient performance to deliver maximum USB data transfer rate".
