Yes, you can get them from time to time.

But it is definetly not a option for the masses, as the available
remaining stock is very limited. And I would not pay that 223
Euros. So, this is not even an option for me. I like it more to
develop an adapter, than going for the old drives. This also gives me
the opportunity for more than 80GB.

BTW: A MK8009GAH costs about 130 Euros or about $100 in the US with
more or less unlimited stock, prices falling.
