A new HDD in Australia?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a friend on another forum from Australia. I'm hoping the gurus here could offer some advise. I told him that Ebay might not be his best bet but I don't know anything about buying hardware in Australia. Does anyone know of reputable dealers? Also what do you think of his choices? I recommended SAMSUNG EcoGreen F4 HD204UI. Thoughts? Thanks in advance

Looking for a new 2Tb HDD what is the best one to go for?? My price range is around $100 maybe a little more if i could get a 3Tb HDD.

Are these any good?

I have no, or hardly any, bad experiences with Ebay as a buyer. If the seller has good feedback (95%+), and the item isn't too expensive, I wouldn't worry too much. Either way, you still have buyer's protection.

EDIT: And it's a good HDD. One of their finest, if I recall correctly.
