Same price on Amazon at the time of this writing. Its a little weird that the Seagate Barracuda bare drive is more expensive than the Seagate Expansion external, though the Expansion is basically a Barracuda with SATA-to-USB electronics, enclosure, USB cable and power adapter. If you wanted the Barracuda, you could just buy the corresponding Expansion for cheaper and open it up. Maybe internal drives have higher return rates than external drives?

@ramkum: Thats probably because the drive inside is some cheap chinese / 3rd party drive and not a Seagate. Just has their name on it.

@fostytou: I would have thought so too. But several people have confirmed that the drive inside is indeed a top of the line Barracuda.
