Ok, fair warning: the code isn't that great, but it's "good enough", use at
your own risk, etc, blah blah blah. Oh yeah, it's written in python.
I generally load the tab delimited output data into LibraOffice Calc to do
sorting, filtering, etc...
One thing I noticed is that Newegg doesn't actually sort "Best Rating"
correctly. Looking at a few drives, occasionally there will be multiple
items with the same rounded average rating that aren't sorted in the same
order as their actual average rating.
Order - Item - Rounded - ActualAvg
1 - Item A - 4 - 4.317581654
2 - Item B - 4 - 4.444198078
3 - Item C - 4 - 4.304396078
And related to buying tons of quality drives, these guys make their own
135TB storage units for about $7,500:
And of course they're powered by linux (Debian actually). See their blog for
more details http://blog.backblaze.com/.
