Apparently my “deal” was due to “technical difficulties with Amazon.” So says the vendor Platinum Micro. And by the way “your order was canceled.” That vendor will never see any money from me in the future.
Now the drive is for sale from Amazon for $129. I bought some from Amazon – with Prime membership I get free 2 day shipping. At least I know I’ll receive my order.
Apologies for any inconveniences from my previous post.
