    A lot of the reviews say they often come DOA or die after a few weeks. Hm

    Track record doesn't seem any worse than Western Digital's 3TB drives.

    Even the regular price of these drives are cheap. 2yr warranty...

    I'm actually considering another WD 2tb Enterprise drive. Twice the cost, but its fast and reliable. At least my current enterprise drive is.

    Limit one now. They must be getting low on stock. Grab 'em while you can!

    Tried amazon first but they went OOS when I had it in my cart =/ got one from newegg though right after so all is good. Tigerdirect will be doing these for the same price tomorrow so check their site. These sales were in response to TD BF ad.

    These are the same ones that come in the Expansion drive deal a week ago. I got them tested, ripped them out of the case and can report a good chdisk, Seagate checks, etc.

    We will see how they perform over a few months, they better last awhile lol.

    Amazon has these for 109.99 but limit 1 per a customer per 7 days :mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Tiger direct is already sold out of these online.

    These are going on sale at 4:39 pm PST as a lightning deal on Amazon, probably for ~$89 again.

    Internal and external both just dropped to $99 at Amazon -- and unlike the 1-per-customer at TD this has no quantity limit.

    http://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Barracuda-3-5-Inch-Internal-ST3000DM001/dp/B005T3GRLY/

    However since amazon ships the internal version with "frustration free" packaging, in my experience its inadequate for harddisks, so I always buy this particular external which always has a ST3000DM001 inside and the warranty follows the drive not the enclosure. The enclosure and packaging around the enclosure essentially acts as a glorified packing system that gets the drive transported safer. I've never had one of these externals arrive DOA.

    Wait are you absolutely sure the warranty follows the drive and not the enclosure plus drive combination? At least wig Seagate I mean.
