New Hard Drive =D

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm planning on replacing my 320 Seagate because 1. It's quite old (well for me at least, 3 years ) and 2. I seem to run out of space quickly nowadays. >.> I'm looking at these 3, they're all 64.99 and free shipping (at the time of this post) Links are: Western Digital Seagate Samsung

Thanks for your time & help.

I can't really give you help, since you didn't ask a question.

What I will say is that in the last three years I've had drives of all three brands, and drives of all three brands fail. By far the easiest RMA process was from WD.

The Samsung will have the best performance, the WD will have the best customer service, and the Seagate will be cheap and sufficient. Hitachi Deskstars are also on sale, due to the new merger, so you can pick those up for $50.

I would either get the WD or Samsung. I own one from each and so far they haven't let me down. From your picks, I would go for the Samsung F3 1Tb. If the WD was a Black version than I might pick that, but since it's Blue I wouldn't. I actually just ordered the Samsung F3 1Tb just yesterday and should get it Monday. I don't have any advice on Seagate drives.

1TB? Are you pairing it with an E6750 as well?

Get with the times, man. You can get a 2TB for 80$.

Anyways.. I'll be going with the samsung. Thanks for the advice.
