Are we going to see 1TB for $50 or will they be at $60-70 from now on? I see the 5400 rpms sometimes for $50 but no 7200 rpm. No, I don't want to spend $80-90 on a 2TB. If there were 500 gb 7200 rpm for $30-40, I'd just get that.

I don't really care about the price/gb or I would have picked up a 2TB for $90 on newegg sales. I don't want to spend too much.

I read that you can't trust refurb hdds. I want it as a secondary drive. I have an ssd for the OS

Chances are they'll be a minimum price, because you still have to cover the cost of materials and labor.
