VOX eternal hard drives rebate scam.

Just wanted to being one more person pointing out that the rebates from VOX are pretty much a scam. Don't buy one. Hard drive is just fine so if you see one at a good price with no rebate it might be an ok deal.

Rebates have a number of complex parts that they will deny you completed. Lucky for me was willing to pay the balance.

I would encourage anyone else who had trouble with one of there rebates to contact the merchant that sold you it and ask them not to carry vox products.

MacCharger-4 AC Adapter: Cheap replacement for powerbook or macbook charger.

This product is a great substitute for the wholly inadequate factory charger for your powerbook or macbook.

Why it is better:
Small and light weight.
Does not get as hot when running.
Does not break like the factory original.
Far cheaper.

What is worse:
Shorter cord.
No glowing lights. this can be a problem if it pulls loose and you don't notice you are not charging like you would with the original.

Overall this is a great alternative. I have had mine for about two years and could not be happier with it.
