yes because a 4tb hdd for that price aint a scam or pricing error
"Super-Slim 1TB 2.5" Hitachi Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive with 3 Year Warranty $129"
The model in question is the new Seagate Backup Plus, which replaces the GoFlex range. RRP is US$250 for the 4TB model which is better than I'd expected. B&H have the GoFlex listed for $199 (pre-flood price level), but they have no stock. Certainly $150 is completely unrealistic.
On a related note, the Aussie dollar clawed its way back up to parity last night.
"Seagate 3TB Expansion USB 3.0 AU$158 @ JB Hi-Fi Fyshwick"
Now on PCCG for $89, but $12 express shipping. Picked one up, will make work pay for it, see how it goes
i need a new internal hd for my pc and ps3. why are usb hdd cheaper than internal hdd?
toshiba 1tb 2.5" usb 3 external $119 3 year warranty
A couple of reasons have come up in this thread.
One is that Australian component distributors that supply computer stores are overcharging (it's often cheaper for customers to import US retail). You can get external drives from Dick Smith and Officeworks, who don't go through the same channels.
The other reason is the flood. System builders like Dell get first dibs on internal drives because they have standing contracts. This leaves fewer internal drives for everyone else, driving up the cost.

Just thought I'd share a promo Deals Direct have at the moment.
If you pay via PayPal and use code PAYPAL25 for any order over $100, you get 25% off your order.
I just picked up 3TB WD Internal HDD (WD30EZRX) for $164 posted.
Good price! And it applies to all products. Not just the WD. They've got Seagates etc. The offer ends on 25.06.12
That is brutal cheap. they sell sandisk extreme as well :O
Correct! That would be.. $220 posted for the 240GB and $120 posted for the $120GB.
I believe they will close this deal as soon as they realise how much money they are going to lose. Their prices are a little higher but the 25% just smashes prices
Considering they sell everything from household items to electronics, I don't think they'll close cause of the sheer volume of products they sell. Also, it was a PayPal partnership promotion and the closing date is stated on the e-mail itself. So they're not allowed to close until the 25th, or.. unless they run out of stock first.
I got the 25% with just using credit card
Hi, thanks for the heads up guys/gals.
I just bought a 240GB SSD Sandisk Extreme.
$279.95 - $69.99(PAYPAL25 Discount)+ $14.95 Delivery.
And I also had a $20 credit with them.
So the total was $204.91 from my pocket
Now I have enough SSD's to go in all my systems.. i have only owned SSD's for a couple of months.
Currently I have a 120GB Sandisk Extreme as my main drive and two 256GB Patriot Zephyrs(one as games and the others going in my daughters machine..lol havnt even opened it yet!)
This new one will be my main drive i think... my daughter can have the Sandisk Extreme 120GB & a 256GB Patriot Zephyr.
edit: cheapest on statice is $239 at your local MSY.
