I should add that I've seen another deal- a Western Digital triple interface 1.5TB drive for $120 from Best Buy (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Western+Digital+-+1.5TB+External+USB+2.0,+FireWire+and+eSATA+Hard+Drive+-+Black/9540687.p?id=1218121459458&skuId=9540687&st=esata)- same net price as the combo I was looking at. Just an FYI.

From what i've seen so far, that sounds like the best deal unless someone comes up with something better.

Hey, there's a deal over in Fresh that just popped up for a 1.5 (someone must have seen your post).

I thought the general consensus was that cyber Monday is a myth?

@SecretAgentWoman: Why do you say it's a myth? I used to watch the traffic spike outbound from work, until it looked like a virus. These were professional people too, and they should have known better. Even now, most people have better access at work than at home (those that are still employed in any case).

I grabbed the Seagate 1TB + dock combo deal at Newegg.com yesterday--I was tempted to wait, but I needed the dock. If I just needed the storage space, I would have waited until Cyber Monday. Storage is just getting cheaper, and retailers are going to market to the savvier types at the beginning of next week rather than the deal-hounds.

Well, I ended up grabbing the WD 1.5 TB Caviar Green drive from Amazon for $80- hopefully I won't be kicking myself on Monday. :) That is a really good price, and I've gotta buy something at some point or obsess & price-watch forever.

Now I just need an enclosure for the thing- here's hoping a nice Firewire & USB 2 enclosure is on sale on Monday. :)
