Looks like a nice deal, but I hate the reviews and feed backs on Hitachi drives. Always steers me away. Samsung and Western Digital is all I really have faith in. +1 for the heads up though! I might do it anyways cuz my storage drive is now dead and boot drive is 5+ years old.

Is there a limit for how many I can buy for $70?

EDIT: This is not exactly a mail in rebate. You mail in proof of purchase and receive a $10 Visa prepaid card.

Spends the same. Anyway, this is a sweet deal. 2Tb for under $70, best price so far and then throw in it's a SATAIII, how can you not like this. Hopefully I can pickup 2-4 of these, but I am not sure if there is a limit on the rebate.

How are these drives compared to WD?? I have only owned WD, and I only had a 8 year old IDE drive start to fail on me. It just said SMART status is bad, but I was able to use it and copy all my data.

1. How are the durabiltiy compared to WD
2. Are these similar to the Green drives from WD, I mean latency wise.
3. Sata 6gbs can be used on a SATA 2 and SATA 1 systems right

Any advantage of this being 6Gbs?? I though only SSDs could take advantage of 6Gbs. And that a 5400rpm drive at 6Gbs would be slower than a 7500-10k Rpm drive at 3Gbs.
