That's pretty reasonable, and has 3 yr warranty.. though my comments from above still seem reasonable -- using a bigger drive (cheaper per unit) as an external (i.e. connected to computer) drive for recordings seems about as useful.. though admittedly I've thought of doing BOTH.. expanding the built in P4 drive to 2 TB AND using an external drive.

It's a nice price, but their customer service just told me these drives don't come in the small cardboard box from Western Digital. instead they come in what they call a "Newegg box". From the last e-mail I received from Newegg Customer Service, it is just a loose drive in a shipping box with peanuts. I'm going to pass. I'd rather pay $15 more to Amazon to get a drive that is packaged properly.
