    Yeah, all the internet stores that have added these drives to their catalog, list the drive as being out of stock. It seems the drives haven't been formally introduced by Seagate yet. In fact, nobody really seems to know if Seagate has even started manufacturing them yet. I really hope they have, but am preparing for the worst. The wait continues...
