The hard disk you have been waiting for

Update 11/27: the deal has expired. Go to Hard Drives at for more deals like this one

Newegg has a 1 TB internal hard drive (expired) from Western Digital currently for $269.99. The price goes down by $30 when promotion code PPAL1126HDD03 is applied. Pay with Paypal and you will get 20% cash back, thanks to this Paypal promotion. This brings the price down to $192 shipped, or $0.19 per GB.

  • Pros: One terabyte of storage and 16 MB of cache along with WD reliability and the three year warranty; all at an unheard-of price per gigabyte.
  • Cons: Not 7200 rpm (however, at this size, that’s more of a quibble than a real con).

I wonder how long it will take for this 1 TB technological marvel at this great price to start looking just like this 10 MB “dinosaur” for $3398 on the picture below (found via Digg). ;-)

    The promo code PPAL1126HDD03 isn’t being accepted. Any ideas?

    And NewEgg doesn’t seem to be on the 20% off paypal list. Am I totally missing something? I’ve been meaning to get a T drive and was going to jump right on this deal!

    Yep, it looks like it is expired already. Just worked yesterday. I will make a note.
