Seagate had a negative batch of drives that put their reputation in the shitter(righttotally so tbh, drives dying like that is total BS). Personally I haven't had actually an concern with either of my seagate drives and also they're still percreating fine. At this suggest I would think about buying their stuff aacquire. I haven't had a WD drive so I can't comment on that.


I suppose i am not the go to person for knowledge on HDDs and their relicapability however as soon as I built my COMPUTER i was under the impression that if you are going to get it from a trusted brand such as seagate or WD you are going to gain a HDD that does the job. I can be wrong though


First off all difficult drives have relocating parts and also anypoint through moving parts will certainly break ultimately. That sassist it seems Hitachi (as of 2017) has the lowest faientice rate throughout all drive sizes:

However before in your situation I would certainly get a 1TB WD or Seagate for ~$42 and then simply buy a 120GB SSD for ~$25 to $35.


Sample size of one ME..

I prefer Seagate's bereason the ones I have had not failed me..

So I am bias in the direction of Seagate and hate WD's lol

I still have actually 1TB SAMSUNG Spinallude I bought in 2009 that are working..

NOW as for the SSHD? Meh I have never before been a fan of those.. I think they are as well much tech jammed into one working drive..

I would certainly fairly have actually a nice Samsung SSD and then HDD's as slow storage..

I LOVE my Seagate 8TB Archive drive (slow-moving as chirstmas on the compose performance) yet it is for files that are not changing all the time..

I've run both in my NAS. I found the WDs more favourful. Quieter when accessing, cooler as soon as running. Still just as responsive. Good RMA company :P

I've had actually both Seagate and WD, and also Curren have actually rigs running both . I favor the WD babsence to keep video games on bereason it seems a tad faster than the tantamount Seagate drives in the process bracket when I purchased these drives. However, via that sassist, both job-related totally fine in my suffer. I've had WD Blue, WD Babsence, Seagate Enterpclimb, and also Seagate Barracuda and also they all precreate well. Honestly, at the finish of the day, I normally go for the ideal priced item through the longest /best warranty
