Yup. Geeks.com had 'em for $139 with another $10 off "with secret 
code" last week, although they may have been refurbs, I dunno. Might 
still have 'em. I didn't buy any because I think I have enough. Seems 
they're only about $149 everywhere else. I'm seeing the 500s for 
$105... not buying them either. The last 2 400s I bought were $79 
each. TigerDirect I think it was. These are all 7200.10s, which are 
actually a half-generation old now that the 7200.11's are out.

Umm... never had any of them fail either. I have a half-dozen or more 
Maxtors that have been running in various desktops for a few years 
now... never lost any of those either. They get turned on and off 
everyday, and I've been known to toss the computers in my trunk as 
someone pointed out... was it Brian?

Oh yeah... almost forgot... I have 8 Maxtors in 4 servers at work 
that have been running 24/7 for 4 years so far. Never lost any of 
them, either.

Just lucky?
