Cool Looking for a cheap 1TB hard drive

Hey everyone, any ideas where I could buy a cheap & reliable 1TB hard drive? I've looked on newegg and everything seems a little pricey... Do prices on stuff like that usually go down?

Thanks!

Are you looking for internal or external HDD's. Also, what is your price range? Right now you aren't going to find a 1TB for under about $200.

Here are a couple of external HDDs:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16822101055R
Cheapest one on newegg.

I have this one and works great!

Here are a couple of Internal HDDs:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16822148274R
Cheapest Seagate.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136151
Cheapest Western Digital.

Those words should not be used in the same sentence when talking about hard drives of that size.... Save a little more, and get a better quality one.

$214.99, I think thats a great price for a drive like that, even though it's open box, it should be okay.
