Pexagon Technology is offering a $50 instant savings plus a $40 mail-in rebate along with free shipping on Item# 800100 - 6GB Hitachi Microdrive (retail $249.99).
$249.99 - $50 off retail - $40 MIR = $159.99 + FREE SHIPPING.Link to deal specifics
You can get basically the same deal through Newegg. I just purchased one for $205.50 last week and the manufacturers rebate ($40) is still applicable through the end of December if I remember correctly. So it works out about the same price-wise. However if someone found a vendor selling the drives for less they could get a real steal as the manufacturers rebate only stipulates that you must have a receipt and that it have been purchased form a "retail" vendor.
Anyway you wish to look at it, now's a GREAT time to buy one of these. Storage in
CF format has never been this cheap and if the pro's are correct prices should rise again on these after the first of the year.
OOPS somehow I missed the FREE SHIPPING! That DOES make it an exceptional deal! Wow- if you'ld have told me that we would be able to buy 6gb microdrives for $160 at Christmas time this year 12 months ago I'd have laughed my tail off at you. WOW...did I say WOW? if not I should have. ... WOW
