And it only takes one or two returns to Geeks and the savings are blown by
your cost of shipping. I bought a refurbished optical drive (DVD-RW)
there to save $10 last summer. It wouldn't even read a CD-ROM. By the
time I returned the thing, etc. I could have just bought a later model
brand new drive direct from Pioneer for what that "bargain" really cost
I'm done with refurbished drives of any kind.
That said, the new Seagate 750 GB drives were down to $90 at Frys at one
point, around Memorial Day IIRC. Or was that $100? I don't think
they've been that affordable since, but I think the 1 TB drives have
dipped down to $130 a couple of times recently.
