I showed up at the Southlake, TX location at 11:00am sharp. There was another guy in the aisle looking for the same deal. He told the sales guy he was looking for 3, and I politely interjected (read: yelled), "I need 1!" Turns out the store had 3 in stock... I was about 10 steps behind the other guy as we approached the end-cap, and he graciously offered me one of the 3 drives. Score!
I got one this morning when they opened in Boynton Beach. FL. There were none out, but I asked the manager if they had any, and said they had a bunch and went and got me one. Then he went on to badmouth it by saying he didn't know why they put Western Digital on the box because only one of the chips inside is made by WD. I'm like WTF, just ring up my $49 400GB drive and save your comments...
I picked one up tonight around 6:00 pm eastern time. There was one just sitting on the shelf with a sign stating the discounted price and the rebate. So I grabbed it. It is up and running 372 gigs just waiting for data. Now for the Rebate!!
Eh when I called (3x, they lost my camera in shipping), all of the dell small business people I talked to were not native english speakers. They did sort out my problem, but only after a few weeks after I called them multiple times.
I'd have to say, that staples guy was really cool and wanted to get in on the deal himself when he saw the price heh.
