Western Digital offers "modded" harddisk

Pretty cool. Guess it won’t be long till we get other drives (floppy, cd e.t.c.) start to do this.

Hmmm new style of casemodding, and I like it…

I wish those discs would come a little cheaper, as they really are beauties… another good thing is that they’d save me some room in my case, I could use it to extend my laptops harddisk, and I’d get an additional IDE port free, so I could use an additional optical drive :wink:

Haha cool! Give me one! :slight_smile:

man i sure could use 250GB:eek: , im starting to run low. Please make it cheaper!!

I want 2

:bigsmile:

that’s cool as hell :slight_smile:

Could someone do the maths for me (not my forte) and tell me how many days of CD-quality (wav) music this mofo could hold?

Last I recall, there’s a program called Calculator on all current OSs, use it.

I’ll pass on the fugly HD w/ 2 neon sticks. I mean neon signs in your case is enough already, but now this?:Z
