New HD

I got Western Digital 500GB 7200rmp hd. It's not terrible but it's slow as hell. I thought about Samsung f3 but i only got $65 budget for my new HD. Any recommendation? Keep in mind that I need at least 400gb of storage.

  1. What do you mean slow? slow in what? If you think there is something wrong with your WD rma it. Getting a different hd wont increase your speeds a lot maybe a little unless you go raid, or buying an ssd.
  2. There's nothing wrong with it. I'm asking for a new HD. I know raid0 or1 is damn fast but it's costly. I only got $65 for the budget. Any new HD recommendation?

    Yes Samsung f3 is a good drive but price in a bit high. I would go with something like this:

    I would buy a hd that has good amount warranty. If in case anything goes wrong you are covered.
