    I was going to bite and get 4 for a raid array, but didn't have the money. Back up to $144 now.

    Wow! That's a great deal. Could need 5 of those. Too bad they don't ship to Norway :(

    You can get them for $235 or 1290 NOK here in Sweden. Or do you have to pay extra VAT even from us? :confused:

    No, Swedish VAT is deducted from the price, but Norwegian VAT is added when importing, so the price will be the same.

    Looks like the deal at Amazon is over...

    Slickdeals killed it. That's the slickdeal effect for you.

    I picked up 3 3TB external hitachis for $400 shipped ($120 w/ coupon, other two were $150). They are all 7200 RPM drives. I don't mind paying a bit more for the speed.

    Yeah no doubt, slickdeals people = sweatpants army of black friday walmart tramplers, how i love them so. the double chins of fear and desperation to get in on the hp touchpads for $99 yesterday made the london riots look like a picnic.

    Back down to $109.99 at Newegg until 8/31 or they're sold out. Unfortunately its bare drive (OEM) and newegg has a tendency to pack bare drives poorly. But hey, if it passes a full surface scan when you get it then you're probably okay.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822145493

    FWIW, experience has taught me only to buy retail box Hitachi's due to the clamshell packing protecting the drive better than the way Amazon and Newegg pack the OEM/bare drives. If I wasn't in one of Newegg's tax zones I'd probably jump on this, but I'll keep watching for Amazon price to drop on retail box version.

    Newegg also has the 3tb external hitachi for $120.

    Like I said, its a 7200RPM drive. IMO, it's worth an extra $10.
