    I have that very USB drive. OCZ is really lazy with their rebates – and the checks they send out are laughable, I don’t even know if my bank will cash it. Basically its a postcard with the check info and your address on one side and the other side is blank for endorsement.
    The post office smudged the account numbers though, which is why I’m worried.
    It took them about 60 days to respond to my rebate after I was notified they had received it.

    As for the drive, its tiny, large capacity, and fast for the most part. Its survived living on my keychain so far, and the lid fits nice and tight.

    FYI that first OCZ deal is from Meritline, not New Egg.

    LOL at the [Reavers] tag. I personally would have put [River] or [Summer Glau] though ;)

    Reavers tag is great…maybe the threat of reavers is enough to buy the DVD. I’ve personally purchased two copies for myself and a friend…and then got the blu-ray edition for Christmas.

    if you don’t buy firefly reavers are definitely coming after you for not knowing what a reaver is.

    true story…

    Just checked out the Sony deal, and found some unbelievably good prices on Nikons and Canons on the company’s site. Then I decided to investigate whether these deals were too good to be true. Suffice it to say that there are a lot of people who’ve found great deals from the same company and gotten screwed…

    Why do most of these Amazon movie “deals” have list prices of $29? I can pick this up at Walmart for $19.95. The $15.99 is a good price, but they are trying to make these deals sound much better than they actually are. 47%? Give me a break Amazon. You’re not fooling anybody…

    I looked at the Spring Hill Nursery deal. I only checked bulbs and vines. The prices are so bad that this is no deal at all.

    If you look at the garden watchdog in Dave’s Garden at [davesgarden.com] Spring Hill has over a 50% negative rating.

    Oh god, don’t buy from Abe’s of Maine. It took them three months to send me my camera, and only after I started the charge back process. Of course, during the time they wouldn’t return my calls, e-mails, etc.

    if you’re looking for a “deal”, stay away from the wind generators, as a whole. when taking into account inflation and the average wind speed across most of america, they never pay for themselves. inflation outstrips any gain and you fail to pay off the turbine in today’s dollars. unless your area has average wind speeds of 25+ mph or electricity prices many times higher than the national rate, it’s a not a deal.

    now, if you want to save the environment, small scale wind can be a good thing. just don’t plan on saving money as well.

    Actually a small generator like that has its uses, and at that price would certainly pay itself off in about three to five years as long as it was correctly sited.

    The trick to paying off a turbine like that is to put it higher than 30 ft because the higher up you go, the faster the wind gets.

    Due to fixed costs associated with such turbines–like the cost of a grid tie-in, cables, towers,etc, it is almost certainly more economical to get a larger system. A small system like that could provide some benefit, but a larger system will capture more power from the wind faster.
