    Price matching isn't a bargain?
    The $179 from Centre Com itself isn't too bad though.

    $179 + ~$9 delivery.

      Just pricematch it and don't mention delivery!

      Works everytime at my local OW.

      Plus it is same price at centrecom stores so I doubt they will include delivery, I picked up one from Clayton today then grabbed a pricematch at OW on the way home.

    how does one price match a seagate 3tb with a WD 3tb?

    •  

      One relies on the cashier not paying attention

          Let me give you some tips

          It's the same size
          It's the same shape
          It's essentially the same except the pretty cover is different.
          Western digital and seagate are interchangable names :D

          Hmmm. I concede that price matching can result in a bargain. But its stretching things to say that WD and Seagate are the same

          might try that at my local BMW dealership….. "come on mate, its the same size as my commodore, same shape, essentially the same except the pretty cover is different".

          ;)

    i believe the seagate is better for those who are ripping the enclosure off and putting them in PCs. WD solders their controller board in place of the SATA connector making it impossible to use as a standalone drive.

      t25 is there anywhere I can confirm these comments?

      I have cracked open the seagate to use internally and was toing to keep the WD external as backup, but was contemplating using it internally also due to usb 2.0?

        This site reviews external hard drives to see which are good for cracking open & which are not;

        Look for the "Popular Posts" menu on the right.

        Also has some how-to videos.

    How can you price match to a different product?

    • +1 vote

      typically…. you cant.

      it would take a very special sales assistant who was willing to match price on a completely different product.

        and maybe get fired :P
