The useless 3D crap has added to the price.  I could care less about 3D.  It will never be anything more than half-baked.

Oh, and for those that date themselves by talking about full-height drives, I offer you this:

G=C800:5

If you remember that, you are probably pretty close to being AARP eligible :)

I could be wrong, and it probably doesn't make a difference to most.

any drive placed in the 3.5" drive bays are called half-height drives, because old 5.25" floppy disk drives used to take twice the space and when newer slimmer 5.25" floppy drives came out, they were called half-height drives. and that term stuck for any peripheral placed in the 3.5" drive bay...

I remember HDD used to eat up 2 3.5" (seagate SCSI Barracuda) bays. Almost all current case right now have support rails so those old drives won't fit, unless you do some modding.

I remember having an old Maxtor hard drive that was 5.25" it was huge and I believe it was less than a gig of storage. I forget what it was as it was a bastard build that ran with a P166mmx CPU.
