My Cavalry died after only six weeks - click of death lost it all - and I am pretty good at getting data off dying/dead drives.

Now I'm still waiting for the rebate, AND I have to try to do an RMA.

Never mind the lost data.....

SOOOO - even if I do get a replacement, I'm not going to trust it much.

I'm now in the market for TWO 500gb hard drives.

What are the best deals now? (I'm assuming 500gb is still the sweet spot pricewise).

Staples is going to have a 400gb Western Digital external drive starting this sunday 9/16 for $49.99 after $45 Easy Rebate. If you don't need 500 gb that's probably your best deal.
