Deal on Western Digital WD6400BEVT 640GB 2.5″ 5400rpm notebook / Xbox / PS3 hard drive for $49.99 + $3.99 shipping at Newegg Canada

I just ordered this Western Digital Scorpio Blue 640GB 2.5” hard drive … it’s going to be used as an external backup unit, so I’m looking for a suitable external case as well (probably the Rosewill RX81U-AT-25A Rigid aluminum 2.5″ SATA to USB 2.0 unit which has great reviews on Newegg and is on sale for just $15…)

A pretty good deal at $49.99 at Newegg (limit of 5 per customer) for anyone looking to upgrade their notebook drive capacity, set up an external drive, or even use it in the Xbox or PS3 gaming console … it’s got pretty solid 4/5 star reviews on Amazon.com (where it’s $77 BTW!)…

Alexey Meyev of Xbit Laboratories published a nice indepth review of 500, 640 and 7500GB 2.5 inch hard drives including this particular WD model.
