My System Specs

Default

A little off topic but I am confused I was looking into getting another drive to close match my current hard drive. I have a WD black 7200 32MB 640 Gig. ( I love it) So the closest I could find is a 750 gig which would work fine for my use. I paid probable around $60.00 for the 640 gig on sale over a year ago. I was astonished to see the pricing at newegg which I shop all the time. (see the below links for an example) I even took the time to call Newegg to tell them something must be wrong. I stayed on hold for 10 minutes and finally talked to a human. I informed them that the pricing on many of the black drives do not seem in line with their competition. The rep on the phone basically blew me off and said that’s our price. What the hell is going on with the drives????
