Thanks for your advice Geoff ...

I guess I should have added in, my job info ... I am an IT purchasing agent. 
I buy IT items all day every day.  I have connections with people that get
me hard to find drives and sales reps that work for me from places like dell
and cdw.  I am not just joe shmoe coming off the street asking for these
drives.  I would
think if any of my connections could get them for me they would since I know
them well and do a lot of business with them all the time.  That is what
makes this really wierd for me.  Especially when I read these posts in this
forum, which all made it sound so easy to find those drives.  So, long story
short, I have dealt with small independent shops that have techdata accounts
and still no luck.

IF ANYONE HAS BOUGHT an FDE.2, please let me know.

Thanks again Geoff

I don't know if you've heard of techdata, but my advice would be to try
finding a small independent shop that has a techdata account and see if
they can special order it.  I don't know why Dell wouldn't do that for
you, but I'm certain techdata has to, of all people, be able to have those
drives available for purchase.  Cdw should also be able to do this, but,
again, they're no different than their ordering capabilities than Dell.  I
just find this whole thing weird.

I have been trying to locate an FDE.2 Drive since the beginning of Aug 07
...
all your posts are places I have checked and spoken with representatives
at
...

NONE OF THEM CARRY THESE DRIVES

They all show them on their sites, but no one has them ..
or ever had them from what I can tell.

I HAVE CONTACTED THEM ALL, have any of you really tried to buy one of
these?
or have you all just seen them on sites and assume they are available?

BECAUSE I CAN TELL YOU FOR A FACT THAT NO ONE LISTED ON THIS FORUM POSTING
HAS THEM

I read everything ... they were supposed to be out by now.  I was told
they
are only available OEM, but when I contacted Dell that was supposed to
have
them for systems they sell, they say they are not available.

So, I would like to hear from someone that REALLY HAS bought one of these
please.  Where do you get them?
