APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: this month

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, surfing the net.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com, ncix.com -- to show us selection & pricing
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Philippines

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: low electricity consumption is very important and don't heat too much.

1. Low cost Hard Drive. ( I need 200 units of gaming pc for internet gaming cafe use that is why i need super low price )
2. Durable parts for heavy use like 15 to 20 hours a day.
3. Less Electricity consumption.
4. The gaming build should be cool no fans needed just one built in auxiliary fan.


I already convert price to US dollar this is the price in my country so that it is easy.... Can anybody help me which one is better and why? thanks

I've been using seagate in my internet cafe business for more than 15 years so far so good. hmmmmmmmm can anybody know about the durability of samsang? i want to know if this hd will last if use 15 to 20 hours a day in gaming non stop.
