    Zipzoomfly has some OEM hard drives at strangely low prices.
    I've never had a bad experience with them but what's your take ?

    Costco is selling 250MB WD Passport drives for $140 so I don't see why a bare WD drive can't be $104.

    Usually I see competitive prices between Zipzoomfly and Newegg but this time the margin is sort of off. Somehow it feels that there must be a hidden catch somewhere :rolleyes:

    update : I compared the wrong model when I wrote the post...anyway, WD is still way cheaper. I might go with Seagate then :) . Newegg prices :
    Seagate Momentus 5400.4 ST9250827AS 250GB 5400 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Notebook Hard Drive - OEM 110 + free shipping
    Western Digital Scorpio WD2500BEVS 250GB 5400 RPM SATA 1.5Gb/s Notebook Hard Drive - OEM 120 + 6.30 shipping
