I am looking for the cheapest 500gb hard drive. I would preferably like it to be from a mainstream seller though if it is really cheap, I don't really mind. I am not bothered about software that you get with it as i have queried free software in a different post.
to find the best price. Not the cheapest- they are usually cheap for a reason- Good drive in rubbish case for example. If you buy a reay made it will come with bundled software of some sort whether you want it or not/ Possible the best value is to make one one with a drive and caddy purchased separately.
But always always buy the best you can- Cheapest can mean trouble sooner or later
