Its the maxtor Diamond series. Is it lockable and does it run at a cool temperature?

That hard drive is fine. You should check your Sunday flyers for BestBuy and CompUSA. I know that last week they had that same drive for $79.99 (after rebates). NewEgg is great for most things but hard drives go on sale so frequently that you are better off shopping around your local electronics stores. Waiting a couple of weeks can save you a lot of money.

Yeah. That's the one I got. You won't find it anywhere cheaper than $80. Not for a while anyway.

You guys are lucky in the States, just paid 85 (136 USD) and that is the best price I could find in the UK.
