.24 per gig: Compusa 160GB for $39 with rebate
.34 per gig Outpost 200GB for $69
I dropped $80 on a 200gb Maxtor ATA100 drive at Staples a few days ago, no rebates or other silliness to deal with.
Outpost again ...
Thank you so much! I have been waiting for these to go on sale!
Fry's again- Seagate 300GB. This time it's not the usual $100, (.33/GB), but $79 (.26/GB). Also, the deal ad claims free shipping.
Yeehawwww. Moore's law.
I'm not a big fan of the newer Seagates since they disabled AAC. They are much too loud for my tastes.
The rebate is valid through 11/3 (see the rebate form), not 11/30. Also, the pre-rebate price of $130 is very likely to go up on Wed 11/2, since Fry's sale cycles are Fri-Tue and Wed-Thu.
Whoa. My BS detector should have gone off on that one- they always make them short. Corrected my note- thanks.
Folks better hurry. $26/GB for this capacity has been rare up to now. If you are disciplined and send in the dang Rebate, you will have a decent deal.
Great deal I just ordered one. But I had to pay for shipping. I didn't see where shipping was free.
At $26/GB this drive would cost $7,800! But at $0.26/GB it's quite a steal.
The drive is $139 in store at Frys. So at $129 + <$10 for shipping, shipping is effectively free.
Sorry, no deal alerts, but I thought I'd bump this thread in case anyone had seen any good Black Friday sales on drives?
bfads.net has CompUSA's sale ad, begins at 11:59 pm Thanksgiving night to midnight Friday. 200 gb 7200 rpm 8 mb cache, $29.99 after rebates. Also a Series 2 40-hour TiVo for $19.99 after rebates.
Are the deals at CompUSA for the whole sale, including starting at midnight?
same goes for a 200 gig drive at staples. i'd try that before trying out compusa, staples might have a better chance because of less people
If you buy a Maxtor drive for TiVo, make sure the store does not charge restocking fee for returns.
Thanks Paula, that's just about perfect.
I just got in on the $30 200GB drive at Staples. The next step is actually setting it up and putting it in the tivo. Can someone point me to detailed instructions on how to do this? I've got a Humax DRT800.
You beat me. Trains were running pretty late this morning and I didn't get to Staples until a little after 7:00, by that time all the drives were gone.
Follow the link in this thread for really good and easy instructions for doing it yourself.
