Samsung DL DVD±R/RW Drive for $24.99 shipped

Tell me I am not a cheapcake! My home PC still has a 2x speed Pioneer DVD-R drive I bought in 2002 (one of the first drives) and I have to wait 15-20 minutes to burn a home video, not to mention I can’t use DVD+R and DL-DVD media.

Not any more, thanks to Mike who found and posted this DVD Drive deal on Buxr. Right now NewEgg has Samsung SH-S202J, the fastest DVD-RW drive at 20x speed as Samsung claims on the product page, for just $24.99 with free shipping when you use a coupon code.

I am thrilled to get this “Swiss Army knife among DVD drives” home and give it a run! More details from Buxr.

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). ;-)
