If you have more money than you need, give it to Best Buy
2.5" USB to SATA External Enclosure Rocketfish Rf-hd3025
My computer crashed, and I will need to mount my original hard drive as a data drive to recover my data once I get a replacement formatted and loaded with an operating system.
So, I went looking for an option, and came up with a device that allows me to connect an external drive using a USB cable. Sweet, and Best Buy has them in stock! Double sweet.
I'm thinking I'll drive down tomorrow if the reviews are positive. I visit Amazon.com to read them, and while there notice the price is a triple sweetalicious $5 to $7 depending on vendor. Thinking I am home free, I return to BestBuy.com to check their price - $70!!! What the ____?
That is one dandy of a premium for being able to pick up something next door, when that something isn't a blonde with a 24" waist and 98.6 degree temperature compared with the blow-up version via mail order.
You've been warned.
