It's only been around 71 million years since velociraptors roamed the planet, or so scientists once thought. In 2003, a new breed of "VelociRaptor" was discovered. It's a genus of Western Digital and it's been evolving over the past decade. Today's VelociRaptors don't feast on flesh and instead chew through whatever digital bits you're willing to feed it. There are several in need of a loving home, so today's top deal is for a Western Digital VelociRaptor 1TB Internal Hard Drive (Bare) for $180 with free shipping (normally $220 - use coupon code: [EMCPGWG27]).

Maybe in the future, someone will invent self-expanding storage -- a hard drive that increases in capacity when you fill it up. That'd be cool, wouldn't it? Sadly, such technology doesn't yet exist, but on the bright side, HDD storage is pretty affordable these days. For example, check out today's top deal for a Western Digital 1TB IntelliPower 3.5-inch Internal Hard Drive for $60 with free shipping (normally $77 - use coupon code: [EMCPHHB26]). WD is pitching this drive at AV buffs who need 24/7 reliability for always-on video streaming.

Western Digital continues the trend of color coding its hard drive line by adding a Purple model built specifically for surveillance applications. The Purple line differs from regular hard drives in that they're better suited for 24/7 always-on conditions, whereas standard HDDs are built to run for only short intervals, WD says. In addition, Purple drives can withstand high temperature fluctuations and equipment vibrations inherent in typical surveillance applications.
Networking woes have you down? Maybe it's time for an upgrade. There are tangible benefits to owning an 802.11ac router -- increased speed is obviously one of them, but depending on the model, beamforming technology can result in a more reliable connection at longer distances. We like what Asus has done in the AC space and use the company's RT-AC66U as our new baseline. One of our few complaints is that the USB port is only USB 2.0, but there's a newer model available that upgrades it to a USB 3.0 port. It's also the topic of today's top deal -- an Asus RT-AC68U Wireless AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router for $220 with free shipping (normally $250; Free Motorola SB6121 cable modem with promo code: [EMCPHHW52]). That's a killer combo that will allow you to ditch your ISP's modem rental fee!
