Default need to buy 1.8" hard drive...don't know WHERE to buy them

hello everyone. my HD in my slim Creative ZV:M died last year, and it's about time it's needing replacement. so, I was wanting to buy a Toshiba MK8025GAL or a Samsung HS082HB 1.8" 5mm hard drive, or something similar that works with the CZV:M. I would like at least 60gb's, but would rather a larger HD. so...can anyone help me with where they are getting their HD's for their Zen's?




Joseph.

Ebay is the best and cheapest place to find replacement Toshiba HDDs

What's wrong with ebay? Whenever I've had to buy a 1.8" drive for a player or something, I've always found it cheapest on Ebay. The markup on those drives (being that they're essentially only for specialty installations) is huge on most sites.

Here is just a few of the listings I've found:

http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Toshiba-MK60...1|293:1|294:50

http://cgi.ebay.com/80GB-ZIF-Toshiba...1|293:1|294:50

http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-TOSHIBA-MK80...parms=240:1318



Keep in mind that when I looked for the same drives using the Google product search, I could not find a single retailer offering these prices. Not Amazon, not Overstock, not anybody.
