Need suggestion(-s) for 2-4TB drive

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So hello everyone,

As my current Seagate 2TB(ST2000DM001) is dying after less than a year use with relocated/bad sectors i'm in need of new drive to back up my old data before sending this for exchange.
I'm am currently looking DT01ACA300 (Toshiba 3TB) , WD30EZRX (WD 3TB), 0S03661(Hitachi Desktar 3TB) or possibly WD40EZRX (WD 4TB)

Drive is to be used mostly as storage for movies/pron/games/tv series etc... with constant torrent downloads running into this drive. So which one of these would be the best option? Toshiba 3TB looks really decent price/performance wise nontheless.

Toshiba would be the best. 3TB drives are the best value atm.

Toshiba is just a rebadged Hitachi Deskstar anyway.

sorry to hear the drive is dying:(
i always used barracudas with no issues - i have 4 atm (2x 1TB, 2TB(ST2000DM001) and 3TB(ST3000DM001) - the oldest is 1TB 7200.11
the cheapest size to $ is 3TB
TBO Toshiba is very good option for the money but i was getting HDD around 6 weeks ago and went with Barracuda 3TB(ST3000DM001)
it was bit more $ but have no regrets

My 1TB Seagate is still going strong is my longest living drive, had almost any other drive fail on me i've had WD/Seagates. Though i'm still surprised this 2TB one went full nuts after less than a year use relocated/spin disk errors/bad's
