Hello everyone. I am in the market for an external hard drive. I am looking for the TB range...2TB or so. I know you can buy from Newegg, and they are a great company, but I am looking for even cheaper pricing. Walmart, Newegg, and Best Buy are all within $10 of each other for similar 2TB external drives. Where are places to look to purchase wholesale? Can you buy the hard drive in plain, unmarked packaging? Can you buy it without the "retail packaging to save money? Thank you for the help.

Never compared prices at Pricegrabber. But generally getting true wholesale prices require two things. A business license = with a corresponding tax ID number and buying in bulk.
