Any deals on 2.5”-1TB HDD’s?

Looking for the uber cheap deal and ultimate deal of May ‘20 for a 1TB, 2.5” SATA drive. Not too concerned about spec and performance it’s going into a PS4 Pro that I am flipping. Need a drive to install into the unit.

Anything you guys know of? Amazon I see $69$ which seems steep because a few months back I picked a SSD style drive for a few bucks more..

$65 at Memoryexpress on a 1TB Seagate Barracuda 1TB SSHD is $80... Can always try the used market, should be able to get one around $50 or less. Or if you can settle for a 500gb... even cheaper

I would settle for a 500GB was thinking of a 1TB just because thats what the PS4 Pro came with.

Amazon has been garbage for delivery in the last month. Im assuming it has to do with some of their Warehouse's shutting down.
Will check CanadaComputers

Sometimes portable USB drives are cheaper than/as cheap as the bare-drive equivalent. If that's the case here then buying one and "shucking" could be an option, plus if it's an enclosure that doesn't need to be "destroyed" to remove the drive you could always save it for use later. However, the warranty will be void at that point but that's not something you will be worried about. You do have to be careful to make sure the drive is still a standard SATA inside as some aren't but I'm not sure what is what these days but surely a google search will reveal shucking suitability.

I noticed that that too and found it funny that a external drive is cheaper than a bare drive. Considering buying a external drive your paying for drive, enclosure, USB cable vs. just a bare drive. What an economy we live in.
