Alright...........so the code is only for newsletter subscribers only? NewEgg is already spamming my email with "deals".

Have this drive, and its slow as crap. Used it for almost a year, and it was a nightmare. Had to pull it from my laptop and drop in a ssd. Yea, its huge but slow.

Be sure to go check reviews online before buying it. Seriously.

None of these links take me to a 1TB drive. Did I miss it?

Edit: NM, I'm retarded. Learn 2 scroll. :'(

Sonuvabitch ... spent too long poking around the site and the 69.99 drive in my cart changed to 89.99. Dangit.

Update: I opened a chat session and they credited me back $20 after I purchased the drive for 89.99. #stillgotit

It's not like the PS3 is gonna max out the transfer rate on this drive. Highly different scenario vs a computer running a (more) bloated OS + games on top of that. Loading times/install times might be slightly slower, however 7200 RPM drives run hotter which risks YLOD.
