DirectCanada currently has the lowest price for it - $90.

I have not been able to find any reviews or benchmarks of this HD. I wonder how the "Black" treatment improves over the already excellent WD6400 design...
Dang, I want one now I have a WD6400AAKS on my main rig (replaced a Raptor 74GB and didn't notice any difference in speed).
