    WD 120GB 8MB $79.99, 80GB $59.99 off the shelf, no rebates!

    BestBuy has a 120GB 8MB cache Special Edition Western Digital for $79.99 and tax off the shelf

    Also a 80GB 2MB Western Digital for $59.99 off the shelf

    Added by Spoofee------------------------
    Circuit City has the Western Digital 7200RPM 120GB 8mb buffer Internal Hard Drive for $79.99 shipped after rebate.

    Note : Bestbuy in-stores (not advertised) has the same hard drive for $79.99 without rebates. If you can pricematch to Bestbuy, you have made $20 and a free hard drive. In this case, the hard drive cannot be purchased online.

    1. Click here to go to Circuit City.
    2. Search WD1200JBRTL ( Hard Drive : $179.99 )
    3. Rebate Price1 : -$80.00 ( Send Original UPC )
    4. Rebate Price2 : -$20.00 ( Send Copy of UPC )
    Final Price : $79.99

    In theory, the 8MB allows your HDD to be read more efficiently. It allows four times the data to be retrieved from a "short term" memory from the HDD instead of accessing the entire drive. I don't honestly think its that much better, but hey, the warranty is for 3 years instead of 1, so its got to be worth something.

    I just went to my local BB and the 120gb were all sold out, even 2 other stores. :x Originally, I was going to purchase it, bring the receipt to CC and have them price match it, but looks like that won't happen. Even if CC price matches, the item must be in stock from BB.

    Spoofe Admin..they didnt do aprice match..the CSR claimed that BB and CC had the same prices..the only difference was the rebates..
    was that a legit claim?

    All OOS here too.. Cincy, OH.. Oh well, one guy said they had a bunch on Sunday and they were all snagged up, another said that $79.99 was the wrong price and they wouldn't be selling them for that if they got some back in this week...

    Everyone seemed kinda pissed like I was the 50th guy who called em about it...
