    Hey, I just realized that my work laptop is getting filled up with so many documents, I can only hold a handful more (and I need them ALL), So I'm looking for the cheapest place I can get E-Hard Drives. It doesn't have to be fast, and I don't want to spend a fortune on one. A 100-250 GB one would be around perfect for me. Thanks for reading!

    EDIT: I certainly have a lot of questions on this forum, don't I?

    It's OCZ, and it's with a rebate (so it might take a while to get your money back) + free shipping [​IMG]

    Never tried OCZ, are they good?

    Also, you should prob look for the transfer rate, you dont want to wait all day to transfer files over....

    I honestly have never heard of them, but you can't screw up a USB stick THAT bad, right?
