Are you looking for a internal or External HDD ? Check ebay/theitbazaar/flipkart/letsbuy to compare prices, I would go with 2 x 1TB if the stored data is important, as bigger the HDD capacity, bigger is the Damage in case of failure.HDD do crash and those externals HDD would have more chances of failing if you move them a lot.
