I've found a cheaper hdd than the Maxtor listed on the X-S homepage.

The Maxtor 120GB with 2 MB cache is $137 with free shipping.
The WD 120GB with 8 MB cache is $159 with free shipping.

And Compare the ResellerRatings

Check it out at Newegg.com

Best buy had 1 for 130.00 shipped,
it was the maxtor 8 mb cache, but the deal expired.
Also there was a rebate on it.
