Contest: Win A Free Hard Disk Drive!

Hard-DiskWe love contests. Really, who doesn’t like free stuff? At CWL we’re partial to giving away free tech gear. In 2010, we gave away a Netbook and in 2011, we gave away a Sony eReader. This year, with Hard Drives recently being seriously short supply and rapidly increasing in price – we thought we’d give away a new drive! Read on for more info about this great contest!

As always, the lucky winner will be notified by email and then shipped the drive (free of charge). Some restrictions apply, but you get the idea. Winning free stuff a whole lot better than paying for it!

Update: This contest has now closed. We thank everyone for the entries!
