Looks like seller now accepts OBO.
38 available. I wonder how low they will go?
$6.25 shipping for one + $4.49 each additional to USA (no zip code entered)

That "Unused_Rsvd_Blk_Cnt_Tot" being only 1 is a bit concerning while seeing it's been up for only 56 hours. Am I wrong?

Yes, because 56 hours is nothing.

Disks with no writes but long power-on times are common — they were hot spares and never had anything written to them.

Attempted offer of $190 for 3 but was autorejected. I may just give the sales person I've dealt with over there a call in the morning and get pricing. At least that would be a good starting point for best offer.

Since when does 800GB = 1TB? :eek:

I've bought 2 of these from eBay. The first was $262 and the second, bought last month was $260. Both had next to nothing in the way of writes. If you check on a regular basis you will seen them in this price range from time to time. I've seen more than I've bought.

I was auto-rejected up to $250. I think most sellers want around ~$330 for these drives for like these (even contacting them directly).

But Fritz is right--better deals can be found not too uncommonly.

I'm not sure if either of us reading it wrong but, shouldn't the Unused Reserved Block Count be high when there is not much writing on it?

Interestingly enough, I just found 3x S3700 800GB drives while looking for an 80GB S3500. No S3500's smaller than 800GB sadly.
