Not too bad...

I think the retail price is somewhere in the $400 range.

A dollar a gig seems to be the going price for decent drives. Sometimes a little less, sometimes a little more, especially if it's an exterior drive, they tend to want to make up the outlay for the housing.

the price per gig will indeed depend on whether or not the drive comes in an external box or not... usually you price bare drives, and a dollar a gig is too expensive for a bare hd.

i just paid ~$70 for 200 gigs, on sale at fry's, for instance... that was an ide interface, other drive interfaces will cost more.

Fry's is great... my favorite place. But not nationwide I'm afraid so some people are stuck paying full retail.

I just bought a 300 GB 7200 RPM Seagate external firewire drive a week ago. It was $230 on sale at CompUSA....

La Cie makes a wonderful 500 GB external drive for around $469.

I believe they also just came out with a 1TB drive as well.

Also just FYI.... when they say 500GB...they really mean 465 GB.
