Considering how long it took them to get the 400GB/500GB drives to market after anouncing them, I was surprised to see these...gonna order a pair next week :)

CDW has them cheaper, but also notes "ships in 1-2 weeks" :(

Newegg is throwing in for free ( combo deal ) a 250g Maxtor sata drive. Click the link in MonsterMan's first post.

I wonder if NewEgg inflated the price of the Seagate drive since you guys started posting about it?

I'm not sure what Seagate is getting out of the deal with Maxtor. Maybe they wanted a little more retail market share or Maxtors R&D people? Over the last couple of years Seagate made a strong push in the retail market so I can't imagine market share would be the primary reason for the purchase.

That combo deal is dead.. must have been the shortest one in history. Heres a link to a screen capture so you don't think I've completely lost it-
