Default Western Digital Raptor 80Gb 10,000RPM SATA

I have about 80 Western Digital Raptor 80Gb 10,000RPM SATA 150 Hard drives for sale.

Specs:

Model Number: WD800GD
Dell Part Number (will work in any brand PC): 0X9280
Series: Western Digital Raptor (the fastest SATA drives out!)
Capacity: 80 GB
Speed: 10,000 rpm
Cache: 8MB
Seek time: 4.5 ms avg
Interface: Serial ATA (SATA) 150
Power Connector: Serial ATA and 4 PIN Molex
Condition: Brand New with 1 Year Warranty
RoHS Compliance: Yes
Additional Specifications: http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc....nBfcHY9JnBfY3Y

This listing is for a New 80Gb Western Digital Raptor. Not, a 74Gb, but an 80Gb Raptor! There are only two ways to get a NEW 80Gb 10,000 RPM Raptor. Buy a $1000+ Dell XPS system, or buy one through me. These are not sold in computer stores to the general public!

You may ask, is there any difference between the 74Gb and 80Gb drive in performance? The answer is, the only difference you'll see is the 6 extra Gbs! The drives are exactly the same physically, the only reason why WD released the Raptor in the 74Gb size is because marketing people (in their infinite wisdom) wanted to make the Raptor drives the same size as WD's enterprise SCSI series instead of their SATA/IDE series. Their solution was to use software to hide the last 6Gb of the drive. You're still paying for all 80Gb, and you should be getting them! However, WD produces a limited number of these drives for select OEMs (Dell) and now I'm bringing them directly to you!

These drives are brand new and FACTORY SEALED. It will come to you in a factory sealed static free bag with no accessories. These drives are compatible with any computer that supports SATA, but may need to be formatted.

Price: $109 for 1-3, contact me for better pricing on 4+.

Domestic Shipping Options (including AFO/FPO):

* Priority Mail $6.95
* Express Mail $16.40
* Any other USPS or Fedex option (contact me for a quote)

International Shipping Options:

* Global Priority Mail to Canada and Mexico $11.75
* Global Priority Mail to most other countries $13.75
* Global Express Mail to all countries - contact me for a quote

Warranty:

This item has a 1 year warranty directly through me with return shipping paid. This warranty does not cover abuse or physical damage (I'm resonable, just don't drop it from 5 feet onto a tile floor).

Payment:

I can do this transaction on ebay at the link below or directly (off of ebay):

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...2187&rd=1&rd=1

I accept the following forms of payment:

Since these drives are New OEM (they come in a sealed static free bag without accesories, but I'll throw in a SATA cable if you ask nicely ) not retail I only have a 1 year warranty from my distributor which I'm passing on to you.

Shipping to the UK is only $13.75 USD for Global Priority Mail Insured - and if you have any problems I'll pay return shipping as well as the shipping costs to send you a new one.

I'm confident in everything I sell, and if you're like me, you HATE paying return shipping when things fail and they're covered under warranty (or even worse, if you're shipped the wrong item)...

The total price to the UK including shipping is approx. 64 (subject to change slightly due to currency and exchange fluctuations)

I noticed that for each additional unit i purchase, i will have to pay another $13.75 USD. Is there anyway you can reduce this if im buying a few? Also what would the price be if i were to purchase 4 or 5? Cheers

They have to be identical..

There are a few chipsets that will let you RAID with non-identical drives (each drive will have the capacity of the lower drive then), but in general they do need to be identical. This drive while physically the same, has different firmware than the 74Gb drive making it 80Gbs so yes it is a different drive with a different model number.

Shipping to the UK:

Basically the reason shipping is only $13.75 for one is I'm sending it in Flat Rate packaging which is based on size, not weight so even though it weighs two pounds, I only pay the 1/2 rate. Unfortunetly they don't have any bigger flat rate options.

So shipping for 2 drives Global Priority actually costs me a tad more than 1, but I eat the difference since you're buying two. Same with shipping for 3 drives. I can send 2 drives regular Airmail Letter Post (has weight limit of 4lb) which usually only takes a couple more days than Global Priority. Global Priority has a weight limit of 4 lbs also, so I have to send 3 or more drive shipment Airmail Parcel Post or Global Express. However with 4+ drives it starts to become less.

But if you get more than three, I can give you a discount on shipping.

For 2 - $24.34 Airmail Letter Post or $27.50 Global Priority Mail
For 3 - $41.25 Airmail Parcel Post or $47.15 Global Express Mail
For 4 - $49.55 Airmail Parcel Post or $56.65 Global Express Mail
For 5 - $55.85 Airmail Parcel Post or $63.00 Global Express Mail

All of the methods of shipping are fully insured, but Global Express Mail is the only trackable shipping method. Global Priority and Airmail tend to take about 2 weeks to the UK (but can take up to a month), Global Express about 1 week.

If you purchase 4 drives I can sell them for $106 a piece, 5 drives, $105 each.
