The Hitachi rebate department has provided substandard service to me. 
I have not been able to get my rebate. They told me that my 200GB 
drive was not eligible for the 160GB rebate. However, the rebate and 
the rebate document was for the 200GB drive. Their rebate document 
was also more convoluted than normal. Fry's has not been helpful
