More about : good terabyte drive sub mesa a c 125 G Storage April 4, 2010 4:26:42 PM There are no high quality HDDs; all have high BER and start being less reliable every generation. Just live with it and invest in a backup. Any 1.5TB with three platters will do; samsung, WD, Seagate. lolper April 4, 2010 4:37:07 PM whast BER ? any HDD in paticular that has good performance?

HDDs themselves do not differ all that much; just make sure you get the latest generation disks with 500GB-per-platter. lolper April 6, 2010 3:18:55 PM like which company for example WD caviar Black? MarkG April 6, 2010 6:10:48 PM I have a 1.5TB Caviar Green in my MythTV box and it's been running for a few thousand hours with no problems. It's only 5400rpm, but I don't notice it feeling slow for anything I use it for. Ultimately, as mentioned, if you really want good performance you need an SSD. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
