200 Gb Hd $30

Is this a good deal, or a "get this shit out of the warehouse?" 200GB HD 7200 RPM 8MB cache, manufacturer not listed. Regularly $150, after rebates $30. The thing that gets me is the $40 manufacture rebate. What do you think?

I go high end/name brand with hard drives. Much more reliable IMO....

Re: 200 Gb Hd $30

Hey guys... I'm planning on buying a 500gb external hard drive for my mp3s..

found this:

http://www.dealtime.com/xPF-LaCie_Big_Disk_500_GB

I'm planning on buying the usb version: about 60 bucks cheaper than the firewire version.

Good deal or bad deal?

Love to hear from you guys.

I love LaCie, but a 1 year warranty is getting to be the low end wrt hard drives. My WD Raptor has a 5 year warranty.

I think you'd be better off with multiple smaller drives.
