250 GB Portable Hard Drive, $60. I can remember a time when hard drives didn’t hold much more than 10 floppy disks could, and those drives were HEAVY. Now we have hard drives that hold millions of floppy disks worth of data, and they weigh so little. One such drive is the Iomega Prestige Portable Hard Drive for $60. It holds 250 GB of files, connects to any computer with a USB port, gets fast data transfer rates with USB 2.0 technology, and it weighs less than a pound. I compared this price to the Iomega 250GB Prestige Portable Hard Drive on Amazon.com, and take a look at who ships and sells it for Amazon. Pretty funny, huh?
Looking for an LCD monitor? Why not check out this 22-inch Widescreen LCD Montor from AOC for $139.99. You can also look this one up under AOC 2217V 22-inch monitor at Amazon.com. Look at the shipper and seller, again. (wink) I told you TigerDirect.com was a great company.
Over the weekend, a friend of mine called up looking for information on setting up a wireless network in their home this week. I told them they’ll need a wireless router and some wireless adapters for their desktop and tower PCs. If you need a wireless adapter, then here’s a price that’s really a steal: $8.97! This is the Netgear WG311 PCI Wireless Network Adapter which can be found for anywhere between $30 and $60 elsewhere, and you can get it for less than $10. It’s recertified, but all that means it someone got it as a gift and didn’t want it, or they bought the wrong one and took it back for an exchange, etc. It’s been repackaged for resale. It’s just a pre-owned item.
This wireless adapter supports all the WiFi standards: B, G, and N. I was looking at Wireless N adapters a few months ago, and they were going for about $60. I know someone who’s trying to setup a dozen PCs for wireless. A dozen of these re-certified adapters will only cost $107. I be lucky to get 2, maybe 4, new ones for that price elsewhere.
