Seagate 500GB @ Unbelievable Price.


I was planning to get a new hard drive for some time now but I was playing the wait and watch game expecting prices to come down. The other day when I went to Chandni market in Kolkata my Vendor offered me this Seagate 500GB 16MB buffer HDD for less than 3K and I was shocked. I asked him a few times as to if he was sure of what he was talking about or fooling around. Eventually when I paid for the HDD and bought one I was still shocked. Well the HDD in question is a SEAGATE Barracuda 7200.11 SATA 3Gb/s NCQ 500GB 16MB Cache Hard Drive - model: ST3500620AS and it cost me around Rs.2850/-




There's a catch though, it's a OEM hard drive but still he says that there's a good 5 years warranty available on it from Seagate which I verified from their website as you can see below:-



Well, I'am not sure if I'am a gainer or a loser. I dont know if the rest of you guys have exposure to such offers or not but if you guys are interested then I can start a GO which is why I made this thread in the Dreamz section. If at all I start a GO then I will need some help from the experts about courier charges and packaging, etc. I guess I might earn some reps for community work .

there's a huge difference of price as well...IMHO a 500GB Seagate with 16MB buffer which comes with a bill & 5 years warranty for Rs.2850 is the best deal that I could have struck.

BTW if there are few people interested then I can start a GO.
