I bought the last one from Office Max and then price-matched two more from Best Buy. 480GB for @$180? Can't beat that!
Not sure why I needed them, but I couldn't pass up the price. Plus it was the "thrill of the hunt." I finished Xmas shopping long ago so I wanted a reason to be out and about amongst the rabble today and experience the madness.
I'm actually using them as external drives and placing them in removable drive cages. Pretty sweet, except now I can't figure out which drive is which since I have five identical caddies.
I gotta say my FDISK adventure was a long one. Couldn't get it to work as a USB drive and there is no room in my mini-pc case for another drive. My other system has no floppy drive. So... I finally found my XP CD to make the partitions and then formatted them in the USB enclosure. Life is good. 480 more gigs free!
HUGE thanks for the heads-up, Zarkon!
