I'm looking at getting the WD Green 1TB 3.5 SATA Hard Drive 1TB WD10EARS 64MB off eBay.

I will be using it only for Music and Videos for my Acer M3400 so I was wondering if this is any decent or if there are any other better HDD on the market. I'm looking at spending no more than £60.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

That WD 1 TB SATA II is a very nice HDD. For external storage where you don't need the latest speed, it's great. WD makes makes a very good product.

The green drives don't perform as fast as the "black" ones do, but they're excellent for bulk storage of music and videos because even the slowest disk can play back multiple movie and music files simultaneously. They also take less power and produce less heat. I have several of them and find that they work very well.

Thanks for that and also would there be a big difference in speed of a 7200RPM compared to a 5400RPM as the '1TB WD10EAR' is 5400. As in burning DVD's to the drive etc.

A high density 5400 rpm drive is more than fast enough to handle DVD burning.
