  1. I heared that the best hdd is the SAMSUNG SPINPOINT F3 1TB than WD,For more u can look here:

  2. WD have a bad failure rate.

    Green drive usually spin slower to conserve power and heat.

    Unless this is going to be for data storage and not for the o/s, get the WD15EARS 1.5TB.
  3. Can you send me the link for WD15EARS 1.5TB.


    Is it great to use as main drive or better for storage????
