500GB Hard Drive deals?

I'm looking to spend around $100 for a 500GB External hard drive - any deals? Currently they're around $150, but I'm looking for a Rebate, special sales, etc. to get the price around 100.

I am as well.

Our cable company is allowing us to hook up external drives to expand our storage for DVR content.

I didn't see any $100 deals on that size for this week but there have been some recently. If you're not in a hurry another should show up soon.

There was a 500 GB at Fry's the other day for $109, a few days later it jumped to $119, now it's up to $129...

Western Digital My Book (looks like a book) for only $125 + 8 ship. Not the best deal here, but I like the product:

Look at the type however. I have Cablevision, and I would have to add one with an eSata connection. None of the cheaper drives seem to offer that.

i was looking for a cheap 500 gb external too, but in the end, i found a 400gb for $40 AR a while back and just got that. anyways, if you wait a while, i'm sure you'll be able to find something for under $100.

Office Max has a 500 GB Segate External Hard Drive for $139.99. A little pricier than some of the other deals, but if you want to pick it up and not wait for shipping...

From the comments I've read about problems with that drive and the level of support of the small company making it I would think twice about this one.

Will that hard drive (SATA) fit into that enclosure (IDE)?

I might have put the link to the wrong enclosure. The SATA version is here and is $60 so I guess not much of a deal.

I just bought a Maxtor 500GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive at Best Buy. It is $169.99 with a $40 instant savings, so $129.99. The boxes at the store had an orignal price tag with $249.99. I'm sure it was an old sticker. Anyways, I picked one up. It got decent reveiws on some other sites.

Thank you very much GAC. I got it for 116$ I think. Not sure why. Also signed up for the free second day air delivery. I'll make certain to cancel that membership before I'm forced to pay.
