Not-a-Leader thanks.

EDIT: And now out of stock, like two minutes later. Up to $149 (still not terrible) from a non-Amazon vendor. Glad I got an order in.

It was $140 yesterday non-sale price. A lot of sales lately on this drive, maybe the trend will continue. What I like about the drive is the ability to buy the FW800 or thunderbolt adapter.

As I said yesterday, I believe Costo B&Ms carry this same drive for the same price.



It is what it is.

see thread at Slick Deals

it seems that Costco has an older version, 7200 PRM with 5 plater (800 GB each), while at Amazon you don't know what you get, could be the older version (like the one from Costco) or a newer version with 5900 RPM but only 4 plater (1 TB per plater)

Now sure which is better... the 5900 PRM may seems slower but it has a higher data density, so it may not be that much slower. It should run a little cooler.

Also some people report that after opening the drive and entering the SN in the database, it shows up as valid so you should have warranty even if you open it, although this is more hit and miss.

as always YMMV with these deals

I had one in my cart at $129 after the first round had sold out, but estimated shipping was 2-4 weeks. I passed.
