I have a Tiger Direct store about 50 miles away which I happened to be near tonight. I stopped in and the 2TB drive was on sale for $89.99. The terms of the rebate say that it can be bought online or via a retail outlet and the sales rep said he saw no reason that it shouldn't be accepted. If it goes through it will be a pretty awesome deal and if it doesn't it is still a bit cheaper than the drive I was looking at even after tax.

Tiger Direct rebates are good. I did 4 of them and they all came back in around a month, one only took 2 weeks.

I have received rebates from a dozen different companies. I make copies of everything, so there can be no doubts.

TD is the one exception. I bought several different items, each with a rebate. I got confirmations on all of them. I did not get my rebates. I called, and called, and called, and called. I got one run-a-around after another, after another. Finally, I was assured I would get my rebates if I mailed all my photo copies by certified mail. I went to the post office, waited on line, spent a significant amount of money on certified mail. Waited, and waited again. Called and called again. Finally spoke with somebody, he had no idea what I was talking about.

Only TD treated me this way.

Again, I have done loads of rebates, and I always make copies of everything, and keep perfect records. TD wants to people off.

I advise anybody reading this thread to do your own research. TD is a horrid company. You cannot trust Tigerdirect - period.
Have you done a TD rebate recently? TD rebates are currently rated top. My latest TD rebate took only 2 weeks after sent date.shake head
No hassle yet since I restarted my TD purchases on last Black Friday.

People still use hard drives??

I was sitting on Grandpas knee and he was telling me about these mechanical contraptions that go round and round in circles and then catastrophically fail without warning.

P.S. Anyone know of a deal on 56k modems?
Gosh. How far could you go more sarcasitic? Huh?
Even if you are rich enough to afford SSDs for mass storage purpose, do you think enterprises run cloud servers with SSDs as well?
If so, Bill Gates would like to admire your wealth. And if so, why do you come to this forum anyways?
Buy a 2TB SSD at $70 for me please. Thanks.

Do SSD's give out warning before they fail?

Thanks, Ended up getting one and cancelling an Amazon order.


As someone else asked, the rebate should work even with PayPal right?

Toshiba owns Hitachi's 3.5" hard drive division. WD owns the 2.5" and SSD divisions. The newer Toshiba drives are solid.

Source: http://www.anandtech.com/show/563...chi-buyout

Almost right! WD bought Hitachi's computer hard drives (HGST) business primarily for the enterprise business unit. Its the one that brings home the biggest chunks of profit.

Before WD's aquisition of HGST, Toshiba had only 2.5" mobile and enterprise hard drives. Now they have a 3.5" desktop hard drives business also. Yes, its Hitachi's desktop hard drives rebranded as Toshiba.

I didn't know they had long lasting 2tb SSD drives for under 100 dollars. Link please.

It depends. Much like with physical spindles - it depends. Your hope is that the SMART diagnostics will pick up an impending problem, but it's not always the case.

See this article: http://www.zdnet.com/blog/bott/ss...-last/3621. Here's a quote:

data center admins that Ku surveyed told a story similar to Atwood's:

[M]any of these SSDs failed without any early warning from SMART. This is something that we continue to hear from different data centers. … [H]ard drives tend to fail more gracefully. SSDs often die more abruptly, for any number of reasons that we've heard reported by actual end-users in the real world.
And if you want to read user cases for yourself, here's an article on slashdot that has a large amount of responses:

Good Point. This seems to be a Good Drive - the 2TB that is. Scored 1145 on the Hard Drive Benchmarking. Pretty Damn Good Score for a 2TB. I wonder if this 2TB is the same as the Enterprise 7200RPM SATA ones they used to sell.

TD rebates are OK. I have received mine in the past year or so. But the packaging worries me. The last external Drive I ordered from them came all banged up, but works because it was in a package inside as well. I bought a few drives from Platinum Micro on the Rakuten deals and they came horribly packaged as well and one of the WD Blue got the Blues and had to be sent back - at my expense of course. Hopefully this one will turn out to be better.

Stopping by MC today to pickup the 3570K and a good MB for $25AR. Will ask if they will Price Match and will get a couple if they do.

I agree 100%. Rebates from TD are a waste of time.
Quote from walterbyrd View Post :
Never buy from Tigerdirect. Especially rebate items. This company has an awful reputation. Don't take my word for it, go to Google and do some research.
These guys are true dinosaurs living under a rock. TD rebate nightmares are of yester-years. I guess old dogs never learn new tricks.

TD rebates are probably almost the best and fastest, I only say that because Staples Easy Rebate is the king of the hill.

Maybe these dinosaurs still believe NE rebates are reliable. So you know, TD's rebate is even better than NE rebate LMAO

I had experienced that NE rebates now takes whole 2 months or more, and worse, they claimed "lost/missing/out of mailing received date, etc" report. It doesn't count the time that I have to fight with them to proof it that I mailed those rebates.

And yes, SER is the best worshipworship

Quite a few reviews of DOA and buying from TD - two things enough to pass up on this deal.
