    Hey,

    I've talked to a couple of you before, I'm a newcomer, I picked up my CF-28 800 from Ohlip a couple weeks ago that I'm currently working on.

    I live in Canada, so I'm having a bit of trouble finding a 7200 RPM hard drive for a reasonable price, I actually haven't been able to find someone who still has a Hitachi and the Seagates are pretty slim pickings up here too.

    The thing is, most US sites won't take my orders because my credit card is based in Canada, even though I do have an address that I can ship to in the States.

    What's my best option?

    I'd try Pricewatch.com; you may find a supplier there who'll sell to you, or perhaps even one based in Canada.

    I just ordered a bunch of hard drives from www.zipzoomfly.com. They were the only ones that had the correct Hitachi hard drive. I called Newegg to inquire when they might get more hard drives. After some paper shuffling his response was... "Well... I'm not sure when they will be here but the ARE on order!"

    Gee... Thanks...

    You guys should feel lucky down there with Newegg. The one place in Canada that actually has a Hitachi 7200 drive in stock is charging $180 for it.

    ZipZoomFly refuses to ship to Canada, along with so many other stores in the states including Newegg.

    No one would be willing to send a drive up to poor little old me would they?

    Thanks Gravitar, let's hope that Toughbook doesn't buy out all the stock before me.

    Inbred, tigerdirect is all out of stock, hence the "usually ships in 7-21 days", as is almost every other Canadian hard drive retailer....... Don't you love Canada?
