New HDD, don't buy the refurbished HDD, you don't know when it will gone. You can buy open box if you want to save or wait for sale.

As a former computer repair tech, let me just say that there is no meaningful distinction between new and refurb. What matters is whether or not it works, and works well. You can get new units that are DOA, and refurbs that will be seemingly immortal. So, as long as you're buying from a reputable place, that has a reasonable return/exchange policy, shouldn't be an issue buying a refurb.
