I checked at the brick and mortar store CompUSA and they did not have the rebate or this deal advertised. The closet thing they did have was a 80Gb Maxtor firewire external drive on sale for $229 after coupon and rebate down from $299.
This was in their advertised specials circular that goes into newspapers. I found it from their bi-weekly online circular (go to www.compusa.com click advertised specials then National Circular. click all items then scroll down to Upgrades/Hard Drives. )
The warranty on Gogocity for the Maxtor is 12 months instead of 3 years. That also leads me to think its an OEM drive. Tough choices. Like others I want to upgrade my drive before the lockdown on the 4000 software.
I prefer them over compUSA because they fast and charged reasonable shipping cost. About 6-8$. Local CompUSA would charge me tax - 8.25% in NY- about 24 backs. So my choise is obvious. Thanks to heathriel for posting this info. Hope Maxtor will honor rebate without huge delay.
