Hello,

These two posts of mine appear to have been moved:

I posted them initially in the hardware section for CB 3 (CT) but they appear to have been moved to Operating System?

Both were pretty clearly hardware related, one about a HDD and the other about where to buy. I suppose the HDD question could have been put in "Accessories" and the where to buy question in "Other" but I don't understand them being moved to "Operating System"?

General Discussion / Where to buy?

I see some sellers on eBay right now as low as $80, shipped, for the complete kit including supplementary wires and a clear acrylic case. These look like China sellers.

Ans then I see CTs on "more respectable" better known stores (like NewEgg, etc.) selling them for over $100. Some well over.

Should I be wary of the $80 versions?

Hello all!

I see the add on board to power 3.5" HDD, but there seems to be some conflicting information on the 'net as to whether the USB out from the add on board is capable of powering the CT itself (using the USB to barrel that comes with CT). Some people have claimed they needed to use 2 separate power supplies to make it stable.

I'm getting ready to order by CT and power supply(ies), so I just wanted to confirm?
