Cool. Additional hard drives are always great.

BTW, in case you want an 8x DVD +/- Burner in Black (NEC 2500A, its excellent I'm using it myself), www.newegg.com has it for $78 shipped. Single Layer is very cheap now too.

You can buy the Double Layer 2510A, but it's marketing hype imo. (Also on newegg for $98 shipped).

Which Fry's did you go to and what Theme did it have?

Although me and my buddy use to live in Long Beach, which had no Fry's store, we would always go to the Manhattan Beach store even though there where closer Fry's in O.C.. That store had an Easter Island type theme with those carved out Stone heads and Tiki Torches.

intersting... i used to live in HB... lived at fry's... i went to the fry's in renton (seattle)... they dont really have any theme, nothing out of the ordanary.. just like a regular store... still big as hell, but not as big as the one in fountain valley... it's like a new store, so they made it modern i guess. it's a lot cleaner, that's for sure...

Kosmic Charlie, Ive got drives galore (but all under 20G) if you want one PM me where to send it. I hate seeing a brother struggle when I got stuff gathering dust.

Not to rain on your parade but your hard drive is most likely not new. Fry's is able to sell so chep because the bulk of their merchandise is 'factory refurbished'. These are items that have sent back to the original manufacturer and rebuilt to as-new condition. Then they are repacked in factory packaging and shipped back out as refurbished items. Usually the only way to tell is to look hard for a small sticker somewhere (could be anywhere inside or outside the packaging) that would let you know that this is the case.

All that being said, there is nothing wrong with refurbished items. You get full factory warranties and everything just as if new. In fact, the computer I am sitting at right now is a refurbished unit I bought at Fry's and its always been a fine machine. So as I said, I didn't intend to rain on your parade, just thought I would inform you about Fry's. Some people don't like the idea of refurbished items.
