    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.

    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.
