I just picked up a 160 GB Maxtor Diamond Max Plus 7200 rpm drive 8 MB cache from Costco for $140 (200 less 60 instant rebate). Then got an ADS Firewire and USB 2 enclosure from London Drugs for $140. Can't go wrong for $280 total plus tax in my books. The rebate at Costco ends 09/30/03 and supply was limited. My next purchase is going to be a digital camcorder to start using some of this space. Any suggestions as to a good sub $1000 camera?
