This is kind of last minute but..

But newegg has a deal on HGST Deskstar 7K1000 hard drives for $70 each.

I was going to go with three Western Digitals at $110 each.

I plan on using them for video and photo editing. I was going to put two drives in a raid 0 using mobo (nothing fancy like a separate raid controller). Going to have a SSD for os.

The promo ends in about two hours. $70 sounds like a good price, I know the reviews are a bit worst. Cost saving for HGST Deskstar worth it?

Don't mean to be rude. In a little over a hour the promo needs..

I don't know much about hard drives. Would appreciate some advise.
