Screw the address.Originally Posted by EBFoxbat
I'll go to my local Fry's and jump on this deal!!!
$120 - $50 rebate = $70
Limit one per address.
Perfect for ripping all those DVDs and MP3s too. I picked one up and intend to use it as a media-only drive.

I know Frys iz Outpost, but can you actually get these deals when you go there in person?
Rebate is 50 bucks if you buy it online at Outpost.com or at a Frys store. How much they sell the drive for at the Frys store I don't know. The prices vary a lot between walk in store and the online store.
Ordered this last week. Should be here today or tomorrow. Pretty good deal although they had them cheaper a few weeks ago. IMO Seagates are the best HDs. Very quiet and they have a 5 year warranty on them now.
Seagate hard drives have a 5 year warranty because they break every 6 months. They tend to get really damn hot for no reason, the bearings lock, and you lose a hard drive.
BiohazrD, the length of the warranty is contra-indicated by your reasoning. Logically, if they break a lot, it would be in their interest to have a SHORTER warranty so that it would cut their costs in replacements.
If the drives are flaky, then they're flaky, but your reason as to that being WHY the warranty is long is illogical.
