Very cheap external hard drives at Office Depot – YMMV!

I was surfing NotebookReview.com, another forum I frequent, and I came across a post that mentioned that there are many external hard drives at Office Depot that are available for rock bottom prices:

ITEM # Model Capacity Price
111325 Simpletech external 500GB $37.93
605975 WD My Book 500GB $32.93
420340 Simpletech external 320GB $24.93
420205 Simpletech mini 250GB $32.93
435725 Simpletech mini 160GB $24.93
613890 WD My Book World Edition 500GB $44.93
399305 Toshiba external 160GB $24.93
435010 Simpletech mini 320GB $39.93
396855 Toshiba external 250GB $34.93
138615 WD passport 320GB $42.93
466215 WD passport 250GB $32.93
469100 WD passport 160GB $24.93
426055 Simpletech external 1TB $64.00

You cannot buy these online – website shows normal prices. You must buy them instore. Also note that this is the third time these hard drives are marked down so many of them might already be sold out – YMMV. You can try calling in advance and have the store hold the item for you but unfortunatly there are many dishonest workers out there. Once they hear about the rock bottom prices they might just tell you they are out of stock and then go in the back and reserve a handful for themselves. So my suggestion would be to print out the above list, go to your local store and see if they have them. When in store, tell them the item number – you probably will not find the items on display. Good luck! I am going to pick at least one or two of these if possible.

Here is a PDF file for anyone that wants to print this list: CheapHDs.PDF

Update: Bloody hell there is no Office Depot in my city. What kinda messed up place is this.

    Hi Ashraf,

    1TB for US$ 64,00 is something incomprehensible for me – here in Brazil I would pay much more than that for a 16GB pen drive. It may be worth to take a trip to a next by city that has an Office Depot. It’s kind of strange for this franchise to have such low prices. I’ve already been several times in Office Depot’s but always the prices were more expensive that in other stores. Must be the crisis!!
    thanks
