Ordered on 12/8/2012: 2 x Intel SSD ($20 rebate each)
Submitted Rebate (scanned rebate submission before mailing just in case)
Received rebate in the mail just yesterday, 1/22/2013
Rebate issues aside, I don't think I can bring myself to buy any hard drive, internal or external that comes only with a 1 year warranty. They should bring that EU directive here to America, a minimum 2-year guarantee required on all consumer goods such as electronics.

Reason: Automerged Doublepost
"A global super-rich elite has exploited gaps in cross-border tax rules to hide an extraordinary (minimum) $21 trillion of wealth offshore – as much as the American and Japanese GDPs put together – according to research commissioned by the campaign group Tax Justice Network. At least $21 trillion – perhaps up to $32 trillion.
The best I can find on this drive's speed, from another retailer:
Not Specified by Manufacturer
Western Digital (-1) with unknown, likely 5400 rpm (-1) in a USB 2.0 enclosure (-1) with a 1-year warranty (-1) and a mail-in-rebate (-1)
I've had about 20 WD drives, 15 of which have failed ... 30+ Seagate drives, 1 of which might likely have problems (currently looking into it).
Even without taxes, this drive doesn't look appetizing...
I'm looking for a bear-bones drive, but after ripping this thing out and using it (setting aside the fact that the enclosure is only USB 2.0), I'm worried it's going to fail (even considering that this would be used for non-essential files) :|
