i did what bobby suggested recently. I copped an internal hard drive and then an external case and put one together myself it ended up being cheaper than i thought. If you don't trust buying from Spadina cuz they don't do returns sometimes then check out Bestbuy. But word of advice get a good case, especially if your on the move a lot, some of em can't handle too much motion.
And now back to business
^Yeah, the case is important if you're gonna go my route, factor is USB 2.0/firewire connection if you need it, surge protector in case of power surges, stability/weight in case you're going to move it alot or have it somewhere where there is a risk of it moving alot or falling, activity lights, etc.
Q: Locally in Sacrborough as well try the Kennedy strip from Lawrence going all the way northbound up to Ellesmere. On both sides of the street there are electronics discount retailers all over the place.
Got my 320GB Western Digital for $90 from Tech Direct. Gonna get a better enclosre though when the files get serious enough to protect

WTB: Retro Jordan Fire Red III sz 12, will trade for DS XVIII lows black/chrome 12.5 w/ OG box and towel
You can buy a 250-320 GB. Seagate or Western Digital for under $100, and there's deals for 500 GB Seagates for $180 or less, and just throw it in an external. I recently bought a 500 GB Seagate for $150, from Tigerdirect. Look for Seagate Barracudas or Western Digital Caviars, they're the quickest high capacity drives on the market currently.
Edit* Q I was just looking around, and this is an insane deal on a 500 GB drive from Western Digital if you have a Canada Computers around you. 500 GB WD Drive
