I hope you're not implying that you're going to pick up a used hard
drive. I've almost been tempted to spend money on E-Bay too, and at
one point I bought a 5 Gig drive off someone I knew for 5$, but it
didn't last more than a month, and by the time someone is offering
them used they usually aren't going to.

A dollar a gigabyte is about the same price as you'll get in a store
for a brand new drive when they come on sale, even here in Canada. My
advice which you may take as you please, is to pick one up new in a
store with a proper manufacturer warranty.

I personally prefer to go without something rather than to buy it used
and have it last only just long enough for me to become accustomed to
having it.
