    Hi guys!

    As promised... an update.

    The $199 offer of the Teramate with 20GB is only valid if you purchase a S2 Pro.

    Hahahah... what a downer. I checked with CP and BanLeong already, so do not expect to purchase the Teramate with 20GB at that price.

    Anyway, my offer is at $310 (w GST) for the Teramate with Hitachi (IBM) 20GB 4,200rpm.

    For those who die die want to buy the Teramate at $199, I can place an order for the S2 Pro for you!

    Apologies for those who were too hyped up.

    Cheers!

    Aiyah, dun need lar.

    CP told me that they sold a few S2 Pros without selling the Teramate. So they have extras left over, and thus they sell seperately at $199 lor.

    Aiyah, dun make me feel like I'm a dishonest merchant leh.

    Cheers.

    Let's put it this way.

    CP's Teramate 20 GB is on offer. Originally, it is an offer that is go with the purchase of a S2 Pro.

    Apparently, some folks who bought the S2 Pro didn't want the Teramate. So CP has extras lying around.

    For those folks who bought the Teramate 20GB at $199, good for you!

    The retail price of the Teramate (case alone) is $159.

    I'm offering Teramate 20GB for $310.

    For those who were on the list, I will not insist that you want to buy the item.

    I believe there is some sort of misunderstanding amongst all of us, to let us believe that the price is $199. I mean, _I_ would buy the Teramate if it was going at $199.

    Cheers!

    Well, looking at the earlier postings in this thread, Ender did mention that the offer came with the purchase of the S2 Pro.

    I wanted to get the Teramate but was told that there's no external battery pack available yet (though Ban Leong's website lists it as optional). So my main concern back then was "what if the internal batt pack goes bust?"

    In the end, the XDrive II might be a better product, albeit at a bit higher price.

    Just my 0.02 cents.

    I believed a new X-drive II under $300 and able to read 6 cards. Paying $310 for a Teramate do not seem logical. Just thinking out loud.

    Ah well, good deals never last, got to grab them fast! hehe.

    Thanks for the effort anyway Vincent but I should point out (as mentioned in one of my earlier posts), the casing alone is being sold at $145 at some shops & a faster 5400rpm 20GB 2.5" HDD is about $175 = $320.

    The XSDRive II is going for $199 without HDD. A 20 GB HDD is around 150 at SLS, so that makes it around 350. With a 2 year warranty, immediate availability of the external battery pack, plus the ability to read 6 types of memory cards, I believe it is the best bang for buck portable storage.

    The teramate is slightly cheaper right now, but if you need to read SD or MS, then you'll have to buy a $50 SD-CF adaptor, which brings its cost up to the same as the XSDrive II. The teramate would be better if it read SD instead of SM. I think more people would have SD rather than SM, which is limited to Fuji/Olympus bodies.

    Hmm, me wonders if the external battery pack will work with Teramate?
    Btw, Matthew pls. check your email regarding the PowerBank li-on battery pack. Any luck on finding an adapter for it to work with Quantum cables? i really need to buy another battery pack soon as another of my UnderDogs just died after a long period of faithful service.

    It's alright. Actually I admit I was aware that the $199 was a bundled price with S2, just saw everyone not mentioning it so I kept quiet.

    I am still interested in Teramate w/o the HDD (I have one already), where in SLS or Funan is selling and what's the 'best' price offered?

    I understand the $159 from ban leong is more like a MSRP, so surely got some shops sell cheaper.

    AFAIK, cheapest is $145 at Future Era at SLS & PK Computer at Funan as mentioned earlier.

    Is your Hitachi/IBM 20GB 5400rpm or 4500rpm? Would it make a difference on devices such as the XDrive & ImageTank?
