Default Buying A new HDD

Ok folks here's the deal. As you may have already read in my other post, my Samsung HDD decided it'd be cool if it would just die. My next step, I guess, is to go to the closest place to buy a Hd and do so.

So I called up Staples, and they told me they sold this drive:

Maxtor 30 GB HD @ 7,500 RPM's, was IDE compatible, for $80.00. My question to you folks is: does this sound high?

currently looking at a litescribe drive at staples, due to its ability to label the CD shortly after being burned.

thats what i figured, but then again, there aren't very many people that actually DO replace a HDD when it goes bad out here in KS; they just get lazy and replace the whole deal.

Earlier at radioshack, I had someone tell me that a 10 gb HDD should cost about $100.00. Pulled the BS Flag there...
