i want to buy 1TB hard disk next month but i m little confused. so here it goes-

1)Should i consider buying used one from Bazaar section here or Erodov or from OLX.in?
If yes what would be the best price to buy and what test should i do to know if it will last?
2)Which company- WD(2 yrs warranty), SEAGATE(2 yrs) or TOSHIBA(i read somewhere it is giving 5 yrs)

Budget- 4-4.2K
Place- Nehru place(cost to cost probably- ~3.8K for WD n Seagate currently) or Online whichever is cheaper

Thanks

Simply to save money,, nowadays a lot of software are available to tell the health of HDD... i was hoping if i can get used one for < 3K(wont that be a good deal??)

If Toshiba has bad service support then i guess i will pass,, actually was considering it only because of 5 yrs warranty!!

nothing cant be really told about the reliability of a hdd. being it a new one or old one, there are several things matters especially the psu. wrong choice of psu /el-chepo - de-crapo psus can make bad sectors in hdd. also softwares are not an exact measure of hardware. i suggest to get a new one.

toshiba provides 3 years of warranrty.

There are some models which provide 5 year warranty ^ :)

but available here? i can not find one. even if , such hdd will/may be costlier.

Ok, i will go with new one!
which one is better 2.5inch or 3.5inch form factor?
Should i buy from Cost to cost (i have been hearing lately that they sell fake products)?
Is it possible that buying locally i can be fooled by giving 3gb/s HDD (instead of 6gb/s) or they have stopped manufacturing it?
FK is quoting 4.2K

3.5inch HDD are mainly for desktop while 2.5 inch for Laptop(though they can be used in PC).2.5inch consumes way less power,remains quiet than 3.5inch.

Mostly 3.5 one is faster than 2.5

Thnx bro, this is the kind of info i was expecting!

Hey FK is selling Internal HDD dearer than External..... i thought External were costlier!! :?

1 TB internal HDD should be available for 4-4.1k. You should get Blue, not Green.not that Green is bad, but Blue is better.
