This is a decent deal, I suppose.
Here's how it works:
1 - Put 40GB 7200 RPM drive (item # 428386) is $149.90 in you're basket
2 - Then add the Maxtor Ultra ATA/100 PCI Adapter Card (item # 443233) - $49.99.
3 - Add small item bring the total above $200 (I added some paper clips for .67 cents.
4 - Use a $40 off $200 coupon (coupon code 91320)
5 - Print out and return the $50 rebate from Maxtor -> PDF http://www.maxtor.com/promotions/pdf...MailCert_3.pdf
It's shipped over night for free. Tax is added if Staples has a physical presence in you're state. Most places retail the drive for over the $149.90 that Staples is selling it for, so this is a pretty good deal I suppose. I purchased and installed both the drive and the ATA/100 card today.
I think it's a great deal. Last week I got a 5400 and the ATA/100 card from CompUSA for $100, but for the extra $10, I would have preferred this deal.
The drive is now $10 more at $159.90
