damnit... i really want this to go with my new HDBits account
wanna know if its worth driving to northgate, southcenter, bellevue
wait .. can u take it out of the enclosure and use it as a normal internal hd ?
My roommates and I just ripped open 3 of these bad boys. They are Seagate Barracuda's.
Part Number: 9NG6AR-570
They carry the same 5 year warranty using the warranty checker! These are a complete bitch to open, but there are plusses. You can start either by taking off the base and disconnecting everything (then prying side off) or you can just pull off the right side with a lot of force.
The sides consist of a Aluminum cover glued to a plastic casing that is clipped on the inside. Underneath that you have the hard drive which is enclosed in a aluminum coffin which you can just bend or slide off more or less.
The awesome thing about it is, you can salvage the bottom part for an external esata connector!
no luck Pittsburgh.. $268.99 on Sale!
What about buying at $161 and waiting until the price drops to $53 at that same store?
I thought I was gentle lol.
All in all we will be stripping down 10 of these puppies. This was some desperately needed storage for me as I have 2TB filled completely (Like 300mb left before these drives).
edit: 5 done, 5 to go.
