Default Raptor 74GB HDD Non-OEM

Hi all. Im trying to find a Non-OEM 74GB Raptor (United Kingdom - GBP). Cant seem to find a reputable site.

The model number is:
WD740GDRTL

Ive found it on some sites, not many, can anyone suggest a site that i can get this from?

I know it is oem, but this is a good site to get it from: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...ital_sata.html It comes with the 5 year manufacturer's warranty. And they nicely packaged mine in a carboard box filled with bubble rap and instructions :P

Yeah that's why i dont want an OEM from OcUK. Ive heard somewhat bad results about some OEM products from there. Id rather spend the extra £30 and get them new. But cant find a retailer i recognise!

http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...roductID=90706 is the only one ive found that doesnt say its oem but it doesnt say its retail either so maybes u can give em a ring? I got my two drives each in a clear plastic box with it inside wrapped in bubble wrap, was quite a snug fit, so i think it should be ok, and if it isnt u can always send it back.
