Overstock.com has internal ide 100 Meg Zip drives for $55 + free shipping . U can prolly use the $20 off for new users to get it for $35.
I'd think thats a pretty good deal..

TigerDirect (who usually make you pay through the nose for everything) have OEM IDE internal Zip 100 drives for either $49.99 with no rebate or $59.99 with a $20 rebate. They also have an OEM SCSI version for $68.99, but I don't think that it comes with a SCSI card. (The retail ones came with an ISA SCSI card, but the retail SCSI kits have been discontinued for some time.)

Is the House of Direct one OEM or Retail? They do not mention it at all.

READ THIS FIRST........
Click Of Death aka COD are names describing the first symptom of a set of serious data threatening problems being encountered with increasing frequency among users of Iomega's Zip and Jaz removable media mass storage systems. Minutes, hours, or days after the clicking is first heard, the drive -- and usually one or more of the user's cartridges -- suddenly dies without warning. Iomega Zip and Jaz drives cause Click Of Death by incorrectly writing to their removable media. This miswriting can damage the user's data, the factory-written low-level formatting, the head's positioning servo information, and the proprietary "Z-Tracks" that are used internally to manage and maintain the Zip and Jaz drive's cartridge data.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ----- Iomega normally warrants their drives to be free from defects -- of exactly the Click Death variety -- for a period of one year from your date of purchase. But since the Click Death problem has become such a huge and controversial problem for them -- not to mention tricky from a public relations and stock-holder perspective -- Iomega has extended their warranty policy in cases of Click Death and has said that they will replace Click Dead drives even when they are out of warranty!
Here is a site with more specific information and a FREE utility to check your Iomega drive and media.
