I am looking for 8x 2.5" drives suitable for 24/7 power-on. I prefer HGST Ultrastars, based on my LFF experiences, but can be flexible. Would like something in the 500GB or larger size. Speed is less important. SATA preferred but SAS may be OK (I have several HBAs sitting around).

I'm not asking for a screaming deal but I am somewhat cost sensitive because these drives will be a gift for a non-profit I assist. I don't know the market on 2.5" drives but maybe $40-50 per unit - willing to go higher for larger drives.

Thanks in advance

I have ~20 500GB SATA Seagate Constellations (ST9500530NS - Sun branded) I haven't found a use for. I'd like to get $20/ea if you decide not to go with the above 1TB drives.
