I have the 500GB model and have been very happy with it. Quick enough and very quiet compared to my Seagate drive.

When I ordered one it shipped with UPS.

I'm not certain how to interpret all the various charges listed on the invoice, but it's possible there was an extra fee. I saw no fee specifically labeled as brokerage, and the handling charges only covered GST and PST. I was however charged $1.23 for shipping despite the supposedly free shipping, so some extra fee may have been added in there.

Note that the sale referenced in the original post is over, so this information may no longer be relevant.

I believe the $1.23 is the so called brokerage charge along with gst and pst. At least thats what a customer rep told me. Correct me if I am wrong.

$1.23 sounds suspiciously like HST/GST being applied to a $10 shipping fee. Even if something is free the government wants it's take.... :)
