Thanks for the help!
What dlfl said.
Wait for newegg and Amazon to temporarily drop the price to $100-free shipping, and jump on it.
That'll be your best combination of Gb/$, warranty, designed for A/V work, low power consumption, cool and quiet operation, and proven track record.
But just the same, when you get it, run the WD diagnostic software and do the long test on it before putting it into service, 'cause sometimes, as with any other drive from anyone, "stuff happens".
