Recommended Posts

SirEvan    122

omg.. my friend just sent me a link to a site selling 160GB ata-100 8mb buffer drives for 23.99$ a piece, and 200GB 2MB buffer drives for 18.99$ piece... this is an incredible steal for Western Digital hard drives.. I think i'm going to order 2 of each

Heres the 160GB 8mb buffer drive:

160GB drive

Heres the 200GB 2MB buffer drive:

200GB drive

get them now before they're all gone.

"Yes? China? I want my jaw back!"

Holy [bleep] I should get one of these :D.. or two.. or three... :D :D :D Thanks man!

That is of course if the price isnt a screw up and the drives arent total crap.

There has to be something about these that doesnt seem right. They could be refurbed or worse...they dont work. But 19.00 seems a little fishy. I am going to pass this one up and hope I dont have to kick myself in the pants later.

If it sounds too good to be true, it's usually a mistake.

Sorry for the double post, couldn't edit my last... don't know why. It seems too cheap I don't know if I should fork out the cash and hope for the best or just wait... but if I miss out I will be so crapped off

Well what I want is 2 of the 160gb drives and then I will put them into a raid striping array and sit back and feel the performance increase

8mb buffer is better. The transfer rates are always better with them.

they probably just made a mistake, maybe forgot the last digit.. you should probably buy them before they find out and change the price back to what it's supposed to be.
