    ***Quantities updated 6/30/19***

    I've struck a deal with the guy (Michael) that is selling P3605's on eBay: 1.6TB SSD Intel DC P3600 Series PCI-E 3.0 x4 Low Profile SSDPEDME016T4S PCIe 735858278249 | eBay. Ended up purchasing two from him with drives in excellent condition. He is offering price breaks through his site BitDeals to avoid eBay fees, but purchases are still protected through your preferred means. Really cool guy, willing to work with communities like ours.

    Pricing on others below w/ free shipping within US:

    P3605 100% health @ $199 (quant 22)
    HGST 3TB 7K3000 @ $22.95 w/ discounts 3+ @ $19.99 (quant 400)
    HGST 4TB 7K4000 @ $35 w/ stepped discounts - 5 @ $32.50 or 20+ @ $30
    AMD FirePro S9300 @ $175 (quant 12)

    Wasn't 165 the price he accepted via best offer anyway? That isn't a deal iirc.

    Edit: it was actually 160

    Different seller...eBay link in OP is current sellers page. Think another member offered $160 at quant and was declined. Through a few convos I worked with him to negotiate a more attractive price that he was comfortable extending to the community. So, yes, this is $5 more the the original @arglebargle posted, but closest we've come since.

    Is shipping free if you order from his website. Sucks that you have to enter PI to get to shipping.

    I've met and dealt with the seller in San Jose. He is a long time professional in the business and a decent guy.

    Shipping is free on his site, but I'd check out through PP for buyer protection (no PI exchanged).

    He states that all the 3 & 4TB drives have 100% health. He also honors a 30 day DOA.

    Sorry to hear, man. If really interested email him. He’s PST but has been responding promptly.

    Well I bought 6 - 3TB drives. 6 for the price of 1, not bad for my home server. I just hope they last more than 30 seconds past the 30 days.......

    The guy seems legit and will assist wherever possible. You should be in good shape. Yes, the $$$ is hard to beat.

    Compliments to you Chris Faber, for taking the time to list these deals with care on the forums and keeping the quantities updated as well as letting forum members know how long the deals will last for. It's a pity that the seller takes advantage of your hard work without anything in return besides the discount you got on your two drives.

    They are for different markets. the Grid family is for virtual GPU setup which is the same as S7150(x2) fire pro. The S9300 is a computing card similar to Tesla cards. That's how I think. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    I just dropped 12 of the 3TB in my cart. I'd expect it to be $240 but comes out to $275 & change. Is this deal dead?

    There's a notice in a few places on the site that reads:

    "Note for volume deals: We are aware of a bug with the cart subtotal near the top of the page reflects incorrect pricing. Checkout price will still be the proper price. If you are still having trouble please send an email to us at support@bitdeals.tech and we can create a custom order."

    So, if you haven't already, you may want to proceed with Checkout process and see if the price corrects itself.

    Refresh your cart and if you see the change great, if not, proceed to checkout and should adjust appropriately. That’s what just worked for me.
