    I think a column indicating price per gigabyte would be helpful addition to the magnetic storage chart, giving your table an 'at a glance' sweet spot record of the price data already listed. Reply

    It'd be really nice to have the +-R(W) status of each item on the DVDR list, without having to click on the individual names.

    Also, you might point out that drives are one of the few areas where it may pay to shop locally, as stores like Fry's and Best Buy and others frequently carry rebates for Maxtor, Western Digital, and now Hitachi (Deathstars, anyone?).

    Last year I was typically getting my 160GB 8MB Maxtor IDE drives for around $80-90 after rebate, and this year so far I've bought a 180GB Deathstar for what should be around $70, assuming the rebate ever comes...

    Just a note to folks looking into the DVD drive market...I recently bought the NEC 2500A listed, from NewEgg. If you're a newbie, you might find its lack of documentation and bundled software a problem, but for everyone else, an 8x -R /8x +R DVD burner is a steal at that price. I have yet to burn a coaster, or a disc that I couldn't read in a decent DVD player or drive. And, it's whisper quiet. I'm a happy camper. Reply

    On page 1 "...Matrox recently disclosed its unbridged SATA drives at IDF"

    Unless Matrox really have expanded from the graphics-card market, I think that should be Maxtor :)
