Default Question about the WD Caviar Black

I may buy either a 640 GB or 750 GB Caviar Black. The thing is that I don't really know where to find the best deals. I see the two drives on Amazon for $71.98 and $79.99 respectively. I currently have $35 in Amazon gift card too. Also, I have been looking and it seems that many people are complaining about the packaging of OEM HDDs. But, I may not have to worry about crappy packaging since I currently am subscribed to 1 month of Amazon Prime.

So...are there any good deals out there or should I just buy one of these from Amazon, and which one should I buy?

Well they are the same price on the egg, you also have the $35 gift card so I think it would be hard to match that. Just buy either of them depending on how much you need.

^^^ agreed, you have a better deal going on with amazon since it'll be less cash from your pocket.

And anyway it goes OEM's are just gonna be bubble wrapped. That's one of the differences between OEM and retail. No software, no real packages, no cables.
