    Western Digital 80GB,7200RPM, External USB 2.0 Hard Drive

    CompUSA has this drive for $99 after Rebates.

    Never have had a external and I need more Room to share Music at the Music Cave of ours.Just want a few opinions from the locals about this.Probably going to get it tomorrow no matter what others say.....but just want a few opinions.

    Like is it a good buy(I think it is)?

    And your opinion on Western Digital Externals.

    For new storage hardware, I would consider DVD burner too,
    those are getting cheaper,
    for HD, I consider 120GB with 8MB cache.

    This is just some stuff im throwing out of hat here...

    But, since you mentioned it, External HD has a lot of advantages.

    Well looks cool FC, one of the advantages is of an external that it doesn't matter if your bios supports big disks!

    remember to profit from great read write speeds you have to have an USB2.0 controller in your pc.
    Newer pc's will have those but the older once need an additional card for it...

    Anyway, great buy for that prize! B)

    Do not get it. Although looks a good price but higher WD are available with cheaper prices. Wait for the right deal. A month back I got Western Digital 8 MB cache USB 2.0 7200 RPM for $89 from Office Max. Keep checking and wait for the right price. B)
    Hope you get a nice deal.

    Update: Go to this site Tech Bargains
    Scroll down and look at all the rebates and prices. 200GB is for $149 and 80GB is for $50.
    B)
    Go get it! (Hope you are in U.S )

    How much GB was it?

    Looks like I forgot to write GB. The one I got was for 160GB I was lucky&#33;

    The only thing is with those rebates, that you have to buy them online to redeem the coupons.
