    They are cheap. I see you've got an eye for a bargain. You do right ..we have to shop around nowadays!! You must have some serious storage needs lol

    @AddRAM
    You might want to look at this, $5 cheaper but also has 256MB cache which is better than 64MB:

    Good catch, I must have used an older link I had. They are actually the ones I have, above link fixed.

    $208.94 vs $213.64 but I get them much faster from Newegg because there is a warehouse in NJ, so the extra $5.00 is worth it to me.

    Here's something for you. Plug in a USB stick, download the attachment, unzip, open Admin command prompt then run makeUSB.bat
    NOTE: Command prompt must be run under the folder that you save makeUSB.bat
    Save you some typing.
    IMPORTANT: Make sure you select the correct USB disk #.
    MakeUSB.rar

    Here's the screen shot:

    I just noticed with the updated Newegg link I just posted, the drives are sold by goharddrive right now and not Newegg, I don't like how Newegg does that. (But they are just helping meet demand so that`s good)

    So Amazon would be the way to go, who knows where goharddrive is

    When Newegg gets them back in stock they will raise the price.

    Well, if you read the label of each drive, that says it all
