I am looking to swap out the 2 250GB drives for 2 1TB drives in my PC due to limitations for storing and backing up edited HD camcorder footage.

On a site like Newegg.com there several "bare drives" with prices from 84.00 - 199.00. Not really sure of the differences.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

I recently made a build, im using Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB.
I have no issues with it, and im happy with the performance.

Although I have one...I would never encourage anyone to buy a 1TB or larger hard drive.

Hard drives go bad every day, with regularity, has been that ways since I first acquired a computer. I'm sure that putting all one's data on one hard drive...is not fundamentally sound, based on hard drive failure possibilities and the fact that most users who need to...do not backup their systems.

I feel more confidenct with 500GB or smaller drives, knowing that the potential risk is spread among more drives.

Just personal opinion...

hence the need for 2 - 1TB HDD.
