As i plan to buy a new system with i3 4th gen i need to know which hard drive should i choose from them.
As i am already using 250gb each one of WD green and seagate. both are old. both i had to take in warranty.
and as the warranty are both same 2 years limited here.
which one is right.

i will have around 3-4 partition.

one for download, which will be used alot. movies n shows n stuff. torrent n streaming too.

other for my main c drive until i get a ssd (expensive at the moment) or just use my current one.

then they will be a storage partition for everything and lastly for office work.

there price range is almost same.

As WD black is expensive.

Green drives are low power, slower perfomance enviromental drives
blue are general user drives
black are enterprise/business class drives
red is specifically tested for raid
and velociraptors are for extreme performance for workstations.

I would go with Seagate ST1000DM003.

I built a new system (in my sig) about 4 months ago with the Seagate ST1000DM003 HDD and one of the things that really surprised me was how fast this HDD is! It has been a really great drive and I highly recommend it!
