Hey,

I am going to get a SATA hard drive, but don't know which one. I am looking in the up to $60 range. I was thinking about the WD 500gb caviar black from tiger direct. What do you guys think?

I think you go to NewEgg and pick one of their top-rated drives.
They will be competitive with Tiger Direct, I think.

I like reading New Egg reviews on hardware.

I've not had any problems dealing with Tiger Direct. Go for it.

Tiger Direct has great deals on pricing, and I have not found anywhere that ships faster. Granted I am close enough that the delivery takes no time at all. I can order from them and my parts are here the next day, as long as I order prior to 5pm CST. Even though everyone will not receive their products that quick, it does go to show, that tiger direct ships the orders directly very shortly after the order is received.

You will pay NC state sales tax on TD, but not on New Egg.

Sometimes that makes the difference, but apparently not in this instance.

Oh, and, yes. I like NC a lot.
