Alternative to SAMSUNG F3 Spinpoint?

Hello everyone!

Quick question here:

Apparently my provider has run out of SAMSUNG F3 Spinpoint 1TB... :(

Now I need an alternative.

Which HDD would you recommend (price and performance-wise)? Wouldn't mind paying a little more for a slightly superior HDD.

Thanks in advance! :D

  1. I prefer the WD black series 500G and up drives, but I'm sure everyone has their own preferences.

    Should I get 2x WD black 500GB instead of a single WD black 1TB (1002FAEX)?

    If so, could you direct me to a good 500G model?

    Thanks! :)
  3. A single 1Tb drive is fine.
  4. Find an other disk provider!

    Newegg, eBay, Amazon... There are so many! Depending on where you live.

    Another alternative is the Seagate 7200.12 1TB drive or go with the Western Digital 1TB Black.

    I live in Colombia :/

    Parts I can get are limited. Apparently only WD and Seagate get here, SAMSUNG still not a very popular brand for HDD's.
