NewEgg has Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ST3500641AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM for $150 - $10 off promo code EMC206500GBCUDA = $140 with free shipping.

This is the best price I have yet to see on a Half-a-Terabyte of Storage!

External Version from Dell for $152 + Free Shipping
Thanks for the info John!

I'm always on the lookout for larger drives for my NAS HTPC setup. Currently I'm running 4 (four) D-Link DNS-323 boxes with 8 500gb drives across them (4TB) for storing my DVD backups to stream to the living room.

www.Directron.com has an average price of $150 for 500gb drives. I'm still waiting on the 750gb drives to come down in price to make upgrading the NAS boxes cost-effective. Even at gigabit LAN speeds, copying 220 movies per NAS unit can be time consuming!

Thanks again for the info.
Yea, I forgot to mention that. That makes it a REALLY great deal! $138 for a 500 Gig Hard drive total cost, shipping and all.

I used the $15 thing the other day on Ebay to buy a MS MCE remote for $28. Makes it come out to $13. SOmehow in my last move I lost the USB IR Receiver, and the IR blasters. Works out, as not I will have an extra MCE remote for the Xbox 360.
