    From Fry's Electronics:

    Western Digital 250GB Ultra DMA/100 Hard Drive (7200/8MB Cache)

    $208.99 In-store price
    -$70.00 Mail In Rebate

    $138.99 after Rebate

    Sale ends tomorrow - so I may go pick one or two of these up today.

    I have not been following the price of large Hard Drives over the past couple months at all - this is why I ask.

    Thanks

    I try to shoot for $0.50/GB on hard drives, but that's a decent deal especially if you need the hard drive now.

    Thanks guys. I picked one up (almost got two!) but realized that I probably don't have enough room in my case for another one. I may not even have room for the one I purchased [​IMG]

    If not, I'll take out my "little" 120GB drive [​IMG]
