Is this the Special Edition one with 8MB cache or just a regular 7200RPM drive. If it's the second of the two, then not a hot deal.

It's the Special Edition. I just bought one for my replayTV. I've now got 180 hours of digital recording time :D

Even with the special edition, this deal is warm at best. $199 BEFORE rebates = hot. $199 after rebates = warm. I don't like paying more than $1 per gig.

I agree. $1 per GB is a nice rule of thumb when buying at Hard Drive to determine how hot the deal is.

I'm going to return it because I found a better deal, Maxtor 200GB for the same price at CompUSA. While I was waiting for the salesperson to open up the cabinet a guy was asking him if they had any LiteON burners. The salesperson said "I've never heard of them." I had to tell the guy to buy a TDK VeloCD which was on sale for $29.99 and that it was a LiteON.

Haha! Yeah, why is it that none of the "techs" at retail electronics chains know nothing about the merchandise they sell? JRoDDz was referring to CompUSA, a retail computer chain, and the salesperson knew nothing about Lite-On! It's a sad, sad world.
