According to the specs, it comes with an eSATA PCI card: [www.pcworld.com]

Most likely not Mac-compatible though.

Saw that already; do I believe the 7.5 score or the first quote: "...don't deal with these guys, they are Crooks and Liars. the worst Customer Service ever"

The good reviews outweigh the bad by a pretty wide margin. Too bad for them the really bad one is the first one you see.

8.5 out of 10 for the last six months. 7.93 out of 10 lifetime rating. Looks good to me.

I guess you're right--that's a fairly high mark for resellerratings. Why is it that a feedback score of 80% on eBay would have us running like fools in the other direction?

I am in it for one (500GB) drive.

See if it happens.

eBay only has three categories: positive, neutral or negative so an 80% rating there looks really bad. ResellerRatings appears to give numeric scores over several categories so a Satisfied scores lower than a Very Satisfied, making an 80% much more respectable than at eBay.

Yeah, anything less than perfect on eBay gets a neutral from me.

Hmm... now "backordered."

Put 2 in my cart, and they were available... when finalizing checkout they were listed as backordered. Looks like someoe pulled the plug...

Hope the don't charge my CC.

got an automated confirmation, so I guess I got mine in before the "backordered" thing hit. I also got a screenshot of the "in stock" page after I placed the order. Now i just wait...........

Just checked "Item Gone" page now.

The 160GB drive modules appear to sell elsewhere for around $350.

The spec sheet says they have a 7200rpm PATA drive installed with an SATA external connector.

Worth a shot for a couple of bucks...

Over on the FatWallet thread, someone posted that they called and the item was actually for a cable of some sort. Everyone's orders are slowly being cancelled. Oh well.

My order was also cancelled.

One thing I don't get. Why do they go through the trouble of pulling money from an account when they aren't even sure they have sufficient stock to fill an order? They should debit your account when the item is definitely going to ship.

Did anyone have an order go and list the item as shipping?

Canceled as well. Yesterday it was "in process". This was for the Iomega 500 gig drive.

Anyone successful in their purchase?
