This is the second listing of this kind from Best Buy in less than a week. This is NOT a free shipping item, instead in-store pickup and there are none available anywhere. Bogus listing for the second time!

@dballard99: I wish I would've seen that earlier, just tried to buy one and they're sold out. I've tattled this deal. Wish I could take back my upvote!

I checked all over the Southeast and California... these do not exist. Bogus listing.

@jmartinbsu: When you try to checkout, it says not available.

@jackfountain: Not when I did it.

By the way, NOW it's officially Out of Stock.

@jmartinbsu: Consider that a service, it spares you from making the mistake of trusting your data to a Seagate drive.

sorry it sold out so quickly. I got mine last week and was surprised it didn't sell out then. BTW - it was free shipping, dummy. I was charged a few bucks tax though. Works like a charm.

These are fine if you pop them out of the enclosure and use them as internal drives. Several generations of "Expansion" have had click of doom issues due to the usb-to-sata adapter, but are fine without.

I own one of these. Or I did. Purchased it, had it delivered. It failed about three hours after I opened the box. Couldn't return it since it had a warranty, and Seagate would honor he warranty at all. Took it appart, replaced the drive with a 2TB from another maker and now it works just fine. So I paid all that money for a USB3 harddrive enclosure, and paid it again for a a drive to replace the bad one. That bad drive is now 3 coasters and a couple fridge magnets. My only experience with Seagate is in drive failures, this one being the third of theirs I've ever owned and the third that has failed from them. Go with another major name brand. Prices are similar and they honor the warranty, even 3 years later.

@buzzwang: I've had similar problems with Seagate, and their customer service is epically bad. The last time I needed to return a drive that failed during warranty they gave me a half hour lecture over the phone on proper packaging, telling me that if I did not use the exact packing materials they specified - which were not the same as the retail box - they could receive it and then refuse the warranty for the packing alone. Naturally, said magical packing was not available at any retail outlet within several hundred miles of my home so I had to pay for them to ship me an empty box to ship my defective drive to them in.

It felt like a cross between Dilbert, Mad Magazine, and an editorial comic. Except, of course, it wasn't funny.
