BestBuy has 3TB externals for $99....rip those suckers out of the case!

 

Wondering if you or anyone else has noticed that pre-packaged external drives seem to die faster than bare drives? I can't help wondering if manufacturers put the drives that test poorest in QC into external cases and sell them cheap, with the hope that people will not return them or maybe will think it was the way the treated the drive.

Newegg has the 60gb vertex2 for 60 today after rebate. Ikon I have had several external die at work but after removing the drive they work fine. Cheap Sata converters.

An interesting observation; maybe that accounts for a lot of the failures.

Or there is too much heat inside those cases?????????

 

Also a good point, which I've often commented on to owners of them, and why I've never bought any that don't have a fan in them.
