Need cheap HDD

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
All I need is reliability. I don't need much space. I've seen some in the $25 range and I don't mind getting one re-furbished. All I'm doing is putting a couple of leaning programs on there and putting it in the kid's playroom. What is my best option?

I don't need an 80 gig unit. I could work with 20. Where do I find one?

As long as you stay with seagate, Western Digital, or Hitachi go as cheap as you want.

The 750gb Seagate for 79.00 is the best bang for the buck, NOW. Black friday saw the 99.oo tera byte drive but not now..

It's almost impossible to find a new drive smaller than 80 gigs. You could try picking up a used one on ebay or something.
