The pricing is about right...1TB and 2TB drives are pretty cheap now.


Generally, vendors charge more for smaller drives than they are worth, IMO...1TB probably gives the best price point versus capacity.

I hope this is a new drive, rather than refurbed or used. I think that the chances of failure are the same, but the warranty periods are different (and worth considering).


I also use a variety of HDs :thumbsup:.

Price is usually my determining factor I have not had bad experience with any drive.
