Frys is currently selling a retail box Seagate 500gb PATA drive for 94.99 with no rebates required. The deal is currently in effect and lasts until Tues Feb 19.
Can anyone recommend the current best prices for SATA drives over 700GB?

Anyone know if this is the quiet .3 model for use in DVRs?
It is not the db35. It is the standard desktop drive.
I have two of them in two of my tivos (a 500 and a 750), and I consider their audio output to be comparable to the original drive. I am unable to hear them over the fan.
Which are you referring to (the quiet ones in your TiVos)? You have two of the DB35, or two of the standard desktop drives?
both. the ones listed on frys and the drives in my tivos are seagate 7200.10 series, but NOT the DB35's
Pretty good price at The Nerds.
500 gig Seagate DB35 Series 7200.3 Hard Drive - $130.08.
I will weigh in, I have the .10 as an external in an i-rocks case and so far it has been super quiet. I have yet to install it in my TiVo (as I am looking for a cheap PC to do the installation with) but if the external is a sign to come then
1tb wd green drive for 230 at Best Buy starting Sat Feb 17
Einselen--Why do you need a cheap PC for the install? No PATA ports? MFSLive will probably recognize your external enclosure.
Has anyone tried one of these SATA drives in a Series2 using one of these?
Correct, no PATA besides the external and despite attempts instant cake does not want to recognize it. I will check out MFSLive and see if it is something I can use (both equipment and skill wise)
I do it all the time, works great, just adds about $22 to the cost.
Big recent drop on the DB35. Now the 500GB Seagate DB35 DVR Series Hard Drive is only $87 + $10 shipping = only $97 shipped.
And for only $40 more you can get a WD10EACS 1TB at zipzoomfly.
