I got 1 pm today at staples, the manager was easy and gladly to do it for me, they did not even call frys to verify on hand stock. come out to be $52 since they have the Maxtor on clearance for $108.98. I was hoping the price is a lot higher so I get better PM deal, but their price is only $108.98 because they are discontinuing it. I saved gas and $5 bucks since staples is a lot closer to my house than frys. Some reported that they got diamond max 10 at Fry's in the box, some got DM9. Buying at staples, more likely you will get DM9 but not 10. I just looked at the receipt and it is $52.55 + CA tax come out to be $56.62. Made in China with 1 year warranty, I dont know if it is a DM 9 or 10, I will find out later and update it.
Ripit, by any chance that you have Radio Shack ads, I heard they are having a blow out memorial sale so I am curious. And again, thank you for everything Ripit.
