Yes myself as well hoping for a 0.50$/GB SSD in the 240GB- 512GB range. Vertex 3, Vector, 840 Pro, not sure which other ones to look at that in this category off the top of my head....? Intel 330 or was it 530? Have to go back and look that up now...

I wouldn't pay more than 49.99 for 1TB for boxing price. That 69.99 @ FS is just regular "sale" price, if you really need one fine go ahead. Remember stores are still gouging. Before it was 59.99 for 1TB

Really? When was the last time a 1TB 2.5" external HDD went for $70?

Looks like we won't see anything better than the 89.99 3TB from CC on BF.

This. I think some of the people here are just hopping on the "omg they're gouging us" wagon and being negative and unreasonable just for the hell of it. Where and when has a 1TB external been listed for 49.99? I want another external but I don't mind waiting for a bit longer to get one for a good price.

You do realize that those threads pretty much tell you why people call it stOOpleS (OOS = out of stock).

I think on all the threads listed, less than 10 Hard drives were claimed as being received/bought by members.

I bought a Seagate 1TB external hard drive (slim) about a month and a half ago.
It was $69.99 at NCIX or somewhere else and then I price matched it at Memory Express.
Picked it up for $65.99 and just tax; free shipping.

(By the way, what does 2.5" mean? - the external hard drive that I bought is actually about 5/8" thick).

Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." - US President, Calvin Coolidge

2.5" inch drive == laptop drive inside
3.5" inch drive == desktop drive inside

external 2.5" drives usually don't need a power adapter, they can run using the power from the USB plug
