In my case it's an unnecessary expense. Because the big companies Office
Depot (similar to the US one), BUG (a computer store that sells commodity
computers, iPods, blank DVDs, etc) and Kravitz (an office supply company
that sells mostly consumables, media players, printers, etc) have dueling
sales on external USB drives, it's not worth buying a bare drive.

Bare drives come from computer stores, and there are no big ones like Fry's,
or mail order places.
