Looking for a new hard drive.

Hello everyone. My 500GB hard drive is 60 or so GB from becoming full so I'm looking for a new one. It seems prices have finally come down a bit on hard drives and so I'm looking for a TB hard drive this time.

I've got my eyes on this hard drive. I'd like to know if it's a good pick and if the price is fair. I haven't been keeping up with pricing lately so I'm not sure myself. If you disagree with this choice please recommend me something else. Thank you.

The link you provided is broken brings me to main page.

Since I don't know what drive you're looking at I will just say that mileage may vary from person to person but I've had good luck with Western Digital Black drives they come with a 5 year warranty, I have 2 1TB drives, one that I've had since 2008 with 10,200 power on hours and one I just recently installed last week since I too was running out of room.

eeek I didn't realize I provided a broken link. This one should be working. It's a Western Digital. Is the price good?

That's the one I just got and installed

Here's a price watch on that drive, right now it's not the lowest it's been but it looks like Newegg had a 48 hour sale on it the second week of November for $79 but the price of $110 has pretty much been the norm.
