I Just Had To!

Hard drives are getting cheaper. It's like a rule or something.

When I first built my system I added one fast 74gb drive for the OS and one 500gb drive for storage. That 500gb drive cost me about $110. I later added another 500gb drive for about $95 and then even later added a 500gb external drive for about $120 (yes, I currently have over 1.5tb of storage - though 500gb is strictly backup).

There are currently 1tb hard drives (1tb = 1024gb, 1gb = 1024mb) on for as little as $95. Sick. They go up from there, but even that is a damn good price.

And then there was one... Hitachi has a 1tb hard drive on Newegg for $110 but with a $30 MIR... for you mathematically challenged folks, that's about $80 after rebate. Crazy cheap, for 1tb.

But wait, there's more!

Order now through's cashback program and you can save an additional $3!

That may not sound like much, but when I can say that I bought a 1tb hard drive for under $80 (shipped, no tax), that is awesome.

For me, anyway.
