    Re: western digital 320GB drive

    thanks Dan, I was thinking 70 like I said. amazing how the value of the GB drops as drives get larger. 20 GB drives still fetch $20 on the bay, 80 go for 70 in the local shop, outrageous I know. heck mall wart has 160 GB IDE for about $80. but then you get up to 320 and the value drops to less than 25 cents a GB, unreal. not sure if I could fill a 320 myself. max pc mag dream machine 07 has 4x 1 TB drives, at $1600 total cost. 40 cents a GB.

    You're not old enough. Try $495 for 20 MB. And, that's in 1980 something dollars.

    Yep. Half-height, 5.25", 20 MB == roughly $500. Loud, slow, (physically) big.....and more disk space than anyone would ever need. I've encountered full-height 10 MB hard drives too.
