Following on from the launch of a 1TB hard drive last September by Western Digital for around $80, which has been specifically designed to be used with the awesome Raspberry Pi mini PC.
The company has now announced a new smaller hard drive which has been designed based on the WD Blue hard drive and has aptly been named the PiDrive and is currently available to purchase priced at £27.09 or $31.42 for a limited time, after which the price will increase to $45.81 or £39.50.

Customize your projects to your desired needs. The WD PiDrive 314GB is as unique as your Raspberry Pi to give you mass storage, while staying compatible with our enclosures and the WD PiDrive cable kit.
