Depends on your budget. But this is pretty sick deal for a 2TB nowadays.

Pretty good deals at newegg today. Grab it before its too late.

If you got the cash, go for an SSD under $100 along with the above mentioned 2TB drive. The 5900RPM wont matter a lot. And you would have bought yourself a SSD + powerful storage for the price of the HDD only on normal days.

Got the 2tb Black. For some reason the company that told me they didn't have any sent me a cancellation order which listed 160 units in stock. When confronted they told me it was an error. Then next day'd me one. A call to the contact person advised me that they were holding on to them for their Corporate customers. Red faced they sent me one. Thanks for your input. Now my only problem is cloning and that is another issue I am working on.
