    :D I have run out of space on my G5 powerMac Hdd and was looking for a good internal storage drive, waiting for prices to come down. Well, BB had the deal in this week's weekly ad, Seagate Barracuda 1TB SATA for $189. I couldn't believe, the 750Gb was $199 and the 500Gb were $99, but there were the 1TB drives priced as advertised. 32MB cache, 7200 rpm, 3GB/sec, the real deal. If you've been waiting for the prices on storage to come down some, I'd say that it's happening. Thought anyone in the same boat might like the info.;)

    I purchased one of these drives at my local Best Buy store on Sunday. So far, I haven't any problems, and it seems to be fairly fast.

    Plus, you just can't beat the $189.99 price ($0.19/GB).
