HDD 1 Tb single drive solution


I need a new 1 Tb HDD for my computer. This will be used as a single drive unit for OS, games, music, movies.

My options are:

Seagate Barracuda 1TB, 7200rpm, 32MB
Samsung PMR Spinpoint F3 1TB, 7200 rpm, 32MB
Hitachi DESKSTAR 7K1000.C HSHDS721010CLA332 1TB, 7200rpm, 32MB
Western Digital Caviar Blue WD10EALX, 1TB, 7200rpm, 32MB

I think the Spinpoint F3 is the best solution.

Please advise.

  1. Yep, the F3.
  2. The barracuda 7200.12s are quite good (I have a couple of the 500GB versions, but the Spinpoint F1s get very good reviews as well.
  3. Wouldn't get anything older than the F3; so 500GB platters min. Should also be easy to reach the 1TB target size.
  4. get f3
  5. It won't make a lot of difference in the long run apart from the Hitachi which I hear are noisey.
  6. I have used or still have all of those. Dont get the Hitachi, it makes to much noise. I feel like the drive is failing all the time, but it's not since I have returned it several times in exchange for another. The Samsung is the best IMO then the WD Blue.
