I need an external HDD, is it best to buy a HDD, a caddy and a fan or just to buy a standalone ext HDD?

Was looking at this:

It seems i won't have mine tonight, natwest being the dicks they are have decided to decline the payment for no reason other than it looked like unusual spending….£72 unusual spending? I've spent more in primark in one sitting.

but i'll still let you know what its like when i get it.

It's just the price really…..

External Drive > Caddy & Drive > Internal Drive.

If it has to be external then making up one is obviously cheaper.
