Default Storage upgrade...

Just thought I would share..

I am getting this because my other hard drives are FULL and this because mine broke on my desktop and need another one, so why not get a DVD-RW with lightscribe...i mean come on, its only $32! Such a STEAL, i remember when those first came out that they ranged from $50 to like $110 and lightscribe was like one of those omg things.

Anyways...opinions?

Thats cheap storage on the hard drive. I bought a 160 GB IDE Western Digital for $57 yesterday from newegg. That'* $.35/gig and yours is just $.28/gig.

Plus I personally prefer Seagate, Maxtor or Hitachi drives. All others like Samsung and WD just don't cut it with me. Had too many problems with them.
