How to make, to get, to have, Cheap External Hardisk

This is my style.. I always look for cheap thing that can help me Hehe…. like my super cooler fan CPU.. Yeah.. What to do, oil price increase, so we need to make some budget management. Besides using CD or DVD to backup data, Hardisk is the other way. I think it is better than CD or DVD. Why…? Some CD or DVD with a cheap price but low quality can be damage in a month and cannot be read anymore.



What is the Best Hardsik Brand ? For me I just don’t care about brand.. I just use Maxtor, Seagate, Samsung and others and I just look for Hardisk that sell with a cheap price from the computer shop and they have a responsible for 3 or more year’s warranty. This is because some shops only responsible to sell hardisk with 1 year’s limited warranty. They always said even the warranty is finish, they can help you to claim from the manufacture factory but….. we need to pay extra charge..

Why they always say like this? When we visit the hardisk website like Maxtor or Seagate, actually the hardsik sell for 3 years warranty support but the shop only responsible for 1 year warranty. Hmm.... some kind of trick

Now day lot of people turn into using SATA hardisk, because of this yeah..we can buy cheap IDE hardisk from them categorized as 2nd hand and some shop also sell IDE hardisk like ATA or PATA for cheap price. Be careful when buy 2nd hand hardisk, we need to see if there is no bad sector or damage of that hardisk. :D

Updating post :D This is how to turn your desktop hardisk into USB External Hardisk (^_^) same like removal disk

Hello, I'm not recomending using IDE hd, even though it is cheaper, which mean it is slower...

But it is okay if you're using it as Slave Hd...

But, to think buy a cheap hd?
How cheap it would be to be categorize as cheap?

We can have the 250Gb removeable HD for around RM 300 here, which is very cheap if you compare to 2G pendrive comparing the price per 1G...

Removeable HD is RM0.80 per 1G while Pendrive, the cheaper is 20 per 1G...

Hi bash :D kita boleh jadi kan juga IDE hardsik menjadi USB.. :D cuma perlu beli kabel nya saja :D

Wahh Pageran Winguan.. so expensive
IDE also can be turn into USB same like removeable HD, and more Cheap
For Seagate 500GB ATA Hard Disk is RM319 and for 250GB is only RM205 here :D...

from my exprience.. it is not so slow....still the better choice :D for me that love cheap but better

hehehe.. (^_^)

I do not whether you should go for cheap one or not.
Just few days ago I got myself an external hard disk. I got a 500 GB Seagate hard drive and bought an enclosure for it. I love assembling my computer parts. I go for the best hard drive as I am going to use it a lot. Let me tell you I can get a new Hard drive for cheap(Less price than the market's lowest price hahahah........).
