    Very funny idea, actually. I'd like to get one, but I'm not sure I'd like to install GeForce Experience (again) to be able to get one.

    Also, why can't people figure out that you cannot say "one of the only"? It's "one of the few". Either there's only one or there isn't.

    There are only a few ways to get this drive, of which this method is one.

    However:
    "There's 1080 of these drives being given away".
    There's... There is.... There is 1080 of these?
    There are 1080 of these being given away.
