External Caddy, which hard drive should I put in it? Tags: Hard Drives Storage Last response: December 16, 2010 9:50 PM in Storage Share hero9989 December 16, 2010 7:32:56 PM Seems like all I do is ask questions on this forum... Oh well... I'll get on to my most recent question lol Only want a 250GB one (or something similar), want the best bang for buck, found these 2 but not sure which will benefit more, One has 7200rpm but 16mb cache http://www.scan.co.uk/products/250gb-seagate-st9250410a... The other is 5400pm but has 32mb cache http://www.scan.co.uk/products/250gb-western-digital-wd... Which will help more when the hard drive is used in a USB 2.0/3.0 caddy? (Mainly for backing up and playing Video and Audio files) Thanks in advance More about : external caddy hard drive put wiinippongamer December 16, 2010 9:39:22 PM http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HD... Much faster, cooler, twice the storage and also cheaper than the other two you selected. Buying drives less than 500gb is pointless nowadays, because of the little to no price diference compared to lower capacity drives. hero9989 December 16, 2010 9:44:26 PM wiinippongamer said:http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HD...

Want to be able to power it with 1 cable so it's actually portable. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer wiinippongamer December 16, 2010 9:50:29 PM In that case get the 7200rpm one.
