Hi all - long time reader, first time poster!!

Basically, I don't know if anyone can help, but i'm after an old (working) IDE 3.5" hard drive to bung in an old PC.

Would also like some advice on buying an old hard drive and having it posted to me - I know they're delicate pieces of kit, has anyone had experience with it before?

Many thanks :)

Give ebay a try. You find many random things on there. If its old, its probably going to be quite strong, since its built to be cost effective now I guess.

WELCOME mate to the best bargain forum

I did give ebay a quick check, but thought i'd pop my HUKD cherry and see what comes of it!

As long as the sender packs it properly in an anti static bag, i found 2 pieces of thick foam top and bottom taped around the drive will keep it pretty safe.

But nothing is 100% and things can happen

What size drive do you want?

Ah ok cool. I'm after roughly 20gb...the PC is going to be used by kids, so enough room for operating system, a few games, some music, and countless MSpaint pictures!!
