    Hey guys, just a quick plead for help. I want to pick up two 500GB 5400rpm Western Digital hard drives for my dell1720. Problem is I can't find them anywhere. Can someone please help?

    And I don't want to go through overclockers because I've read too many horrow stories from people buying there and I'm throwing down some serious cash on these babies.

    The western digital is a two platter and has posted some very nice results in tests. I don't know anything about the samsung. Could you provide some info like reliability and is it a quality product?

    I know that western digital hard drives come from highly recommended from a lot of respectable people I know. I also know it was just recently released and might be a couple weeks before it hits most stores. I was just hoping someone out there had it.

    I like the free shipping and it just came on newegg today. I searched for it all yesterday and it wasn't there. I was actually giving up on it today and looking for a 320 when I ran into by fate's hand I guess.
