I got this info from an email from Surplus Computers. They have a retail shop in Santa Clara, CA.

Maxtor EIDE Hard Drive Blowout!

80GB 5400RPM $64.99
http://www.softwareandstuff.com/max81eide.html

40GB 5400RPM $44.99

60GB 5400RPM $53.99
http://www.softwareandstuff.com/h.comp.max60gb96147h8.html

5400 rpm drives are thought to run cooler than 7200 and work well in TIVO. Theses are hard to find at retail so I thought some of you might be interested.

they're still not near as quiet as the newer Fluid Dynamic Bearing mechanisms and I just bought a brand new Maxtor 6Y120P0 with tax and everything (after rebates) from officedepot.com for $69 :D

I'm not familiar with that number, I've been trying to buy the Maxtor L01P120 120GB 7200 rpm, $60 with rebates from officedepot,com, but it's backordered. I called customer service today and they said the rebates were no good on backorders.

item was officedepot.com... 120gb Maxtor Plus 9, all stock was out on website but during cart checkout, simply select "In Store Pickup". picked it up later that day. $110 + $9 tax - $20 instant coupon, - $30 mail-in rebate : http://rebateimages.teg-online.com/63706.jpg and dat's da way we do it.

to pull out an old quote i've long since forgotten the origin of: if you don't like cost of today's computer equipment... wait a week.

I just got a 160gig Maxtor for $75 at staples,

This is what you do

Get the Maxtor 160GB 8MB Cache hard drive for $149.94 - $30 off $150 coupon code 91523 - $40 rebate = $80. Add some markers to get over $150.


But if you go to the store and do a price match it will bring the price down to like $70 - $75. Because office depot is selling it for 139.94
