I don't remember where. But honestly, they were just about the same price... I couldn't believe it either.

I have an ST-251 and a couple others (I'll have to look) for my Atari 130XE.

I haven't spun them up in a long time. I'm kind of afraid -- but at the same time, have taken good care of them. Maybe one of these day's I'll set it all up and see how it fares.
