    I tried to get the Price Match but Office Depot would not honor it because of the rebate on the HD.
    I didn't cancel my order because I had already decided to purchase this as a gift and after researching for a week, $49.99 was the cheapest price I found.

    I tried price matching it but their systems were down, I will call back later. Hopefully they will price match, you think?

    $40 after pricematch? Can you explain the steps in which you got to $40?

    Did not work for me... I purchased it on the Office Depot website, then called in to their customer support 30 minutes later and asked for a Staples price match. I was told that if they price matched that it would void the rebate, and that there have been a number of people calling in to asking the same thing. The lady told me she would be happy to price match, but that I could expect not to recieve any rebate if I tried to send it in.

    Since rebates suck anyways, I'd rather not gamble on ending up with nothing... not a good deal for me :(

    I asked for the price match, and they said the lowest they can give me is 110$ . then you apply the rebate.

    Does this have an external wall power plug? Or is it powered off the USB cable?

    Booo-oooo-oooo-gus

    This was never a price match OD would accept. NO ONE got it to work. Really! Should we test it before we post it? Or, do you folks, just like wasting time?

    Sorry to say that. But, it needs to be said.


    Have fun all!

    There is no need to be rude

    Sometimes good deals are not meant to be

    If you knew OD wouldn't price match, then don't try to get in on the deal. You can always cancel your order.

    I did this deal about 6 months ago when the rebate $80. I NEVER got my rebate from Office Depot. After several phone calls with Looong hold times and sending letters to GFS(Global fulfillment systems) the company that handles the rebates for Office Depot, I still have not received my rebate. I did some research on some news groups and have learned that Office Depot is Notorious for not sending big ticket Rebate checks. Buyer Beware!!!
