Rock Industires hard drive

by redneckokie / January 1, 2010 3:13 AM PST

I am looking for an external hard drive.
I found one on CL made by Rock Industries.
It's a 500GB and I can get it for $55.
It's new and in the box.
The only problem is, I can't find and info about it anywhere.
Does anybody know anything about these?

I can find name brand drives for 50 bucks and 750GB. Yes, these are refurbs.

Then I toss that drive into some 22 buck case. But where is my backup?
