Other than Ebay, what are reliable (Europe based) providers of laptop hard drives?

What's wrong with eBay? You'll probably pay less there and you've essentially got a 45 day warranty. If the drive fails in the first 45 days, you can dispute and the chances you'll lose is almost zero. If lasts that long, the chances you'll have a problem down the road are pretty low.

Exactly!

If you are buying off Ebay you should always try to buy from a shop or someone with a high rating.

Last year I purchased a laptop HD which became slightly noisy about a week after I purchased it from an Ebay shop and they just refunded my costs which was 100% because It was free delivery.
