New or used?
It will be hard to find a new HDD under 500 GB. If new, check "Toshiba MQ01ABF050" 500GB 5400 RPM 2.5" HDD or "Toshiba DT01ACA050" 500 GB 7200 RPM 3.5" HDD. They aren't expensive.

Either new or used is fine. Im just looking for cheap ones because I'm looking for 4-7 3.5s and 4-5 2.5s.

4TB capacity for 3.5. 4x 1TBs or 8x 500GBs, etc

And maybe 4-5 2.5 inch

I'm not in a rush. Several weeks.
