Get a 1TB external hard drive for $69.99 shipped

Well, $69.99 shipped after a $25 mail-in rebate, that is. Still, this drive offers high-end performance, USB and eSATA interfaces, and quiet operation.

Factoring in the rebate, you're not likely to find a better deal on a 1TB drive. Buy.com

Buy.com once again has a Fantom G-Force 1-terabyte external hard drive for $69.99 with free shipping.

What's the catch? It's the same as last time: a $25 mail-in rebate (PDF). I know that's a deal breaker for some people, but I think rebate fulfillment problems are fewer than they've ever been. You can laugh at me all you want, but I think Buy.com is one of the Web's more reliable vendors.

The drive has USB 2.0 and eSATA interfaces and a 32MB external cache. It's Mac and Windows compatible and has a one-year warranty. Fantom doesn't include any backup software; however, there are plenty of great freeware backup utilities available.

I haven't found many reviews of this model, the GF1000EU32, but about a dozen Amazon buyers rated the similar GF1000EU 4.5 stars out of 5.

If you don't mind waiting a month or two on those 25 rebate dollars, this is one of the best deals I've seen on a 1TB external hard drive. But decide soon: the deal ends April 11.
