A place near me had 300 suitable drives 2 weeks ago and now they are sold out. Basicly I've vistited them and picked up a case or 2 of drives every week. They were selling the drives at a price of $32 per drive in a box of 10 and it is now $60 per drive effectivly doubling the price for an unmodded drive, not even considering shipping etc.
The price you were quoted is on the old pricing shedule and would be a nice bargain today. I bet that auction started before the price went up. I've seen these as high as $135 recently.
As a modder and re-seller of these drives with so many available local for so long it's put me in a bad spot and I wish I could just find a source for NEW BLACK drives and somewhere in between the 2 prices above and I'm busting ass to make this a done deal But these drives are discontinued and replaced with a drive not suitable for xbox and the models are refered to as the same like they are interchangeable, but they aren't. There are a million of these drives out there too, I just have to find them.
If you're whinning about the price at $79 you're really gonna love it at $120, because that is what I'd have to charge you to make these worth my time. You need to consider what the price of upgrading from 5x to 16x is worth.
