    Newegg has a similar (if not the same) 3TB drive with an extra $20 off this weekend: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822145493

    And there's free shipping.

    And Newegg shows stock whereas Microcenter lists in store pickup only and has no stock at my local stores.

    It seems there are a couple places to get a Hitachi Deskstar for a decent price.
    Intel Core I7-4770K w/ 16 GB RAM
    ASRock Z87M Extreme4 (ATX)
    Corsair H110 CPU Cooler
    Asus GTX 460 1GB
    HAF XB case PC Power and Cooling Silencer 610 EPS12V
    Crucial 512GB MX100 SSD, Patriot Torqx 2 32GB SSD
    2x Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 ST3200822AS 200GB drive. (RAID0/RAID1)
    Mint 17.2 Linux (Rafaela, 64 bit) and Win10 pro in a VM.

    Just had a hitachi 1tb go out on me a week ago, so that means 75% of the hitachi drives I've bought have died.

    Then again the only other 3tb drives available are WD greens and seagate... I'll stick with 2tb until there are some WD blacks/blues/ sammies in there.
