That is a great deal. I think I paid around $80 or $90 for mine back in May. Makes me want to buy more.

Inner voice: No misterlarry do not reach for wallet. Nooooo!

Just knock on wood!

The 2 500GB Seagates 7200.11 that I received were made in Thailand - I'm kinda nervous about that ! And the SMART attributes are all over the place, some of the worst ECC rates I've seen - I know that it's normal for most seagates, but not as bad as the 7200.10, so I'm keeping fingers crossed! :) Will make a new thread about it, because I notice they run nowhere near as fast as my 320GB 7200.10 SATA2.

lol. The ES drives are quite a bit different than these.

Either way only a max quantity of 2. Although I can price match @ NCIX and have an unlimited quantity :D I was planning on buying a massive storage server tonight. I guess I'll wait and see how NCIX prices after tonights sale.
