|lightfoot3b||500GB units have been on sale for around 60 a few times. I guess as far as 1TB goes, this is good. But at this price I'm buying a complete computer refurb for $220-300 and pulling the drive and selling the computer later or having a spare.|

|lawchingto||its supply and demand, people should hold off from buying any hard drives unless you have to, then the price will come down faster. if u guys keeping buying it, then they will only drop the price slower.|

If you like Samsung drives and that particular model, then get 'em before they're gone for good. Seagate bought Samsung's HD division....

|diskwzrd||Note that this is the 7200RPM model and not the usual 5400RPM model which is what you would normally find on sale for the $50-$60 range... Still a high price but not as terrible as most people would probably think based on the current HD scarcity...|

|jwilson32||I agree... The price on all HD's suck right now. From what I've been told, the price's wont be coming down for 3-6 months... From what I can see, this is a pretty good deal for a HD that has good specs/reviews...|

|jwilder66||Why did this get TD? This price is the sad reality of hard drives right now, but as far as I know this is a top deal.|

Thanks for the deal though, I have been lazy to upgrade my computer, but figured a new harddrive and a switch to Windows 7 would kickstart the process.
Was bummed I missed out on the 1TB "Green" drive two days ago, but this deal is so much better! I know they're more expensive now, but I wanted the warm cushy feeling of knowing I at least got a deal relative to reality, not three months ago

Whatever the reason truly is...floods or coporations taking advantage of the situation. The bottom line is that benchmarked against all available prices for this hard drive, this is a great deal. Also note that macmall dropped the price to about the same ($108.99 so a buck cheaper).
I had a 20 off 40 still for newegg so I jumped on it. You won't touch this drive anywhere for a while at a price of 89.99.
