Can't say anything about them (vendor), but I can say that be aware
that the ST19171WC is a 1.6 inch height drives.

The 1.6 inch height drives are always cheaper.  I've seen inch height
9 gig drives for $20ish... so I'm not surprised your seeing ST19171WC for
that (they tended to run roughly half the cost of an similiar inch height
