Apr 14, 2012, 11:51 PM
Im looking for 1TB or 2TB HDD for video storage, Handbrake encoding, and Torrent downloading. Now, I considering 2 hard drives.
1. WD Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM.
2. SAMSUNG EcoGreen F4 HD204UI 2TB 5400 RPM.
1. Any performance difference between the 2 in terms of my workload (Handbrake, Torrent, Video storage, HD video playback)?
2. Can Samsung EcoGreen F4 perform well on multitasking (downloading, waching video, encoding)?
Right now, WD is for $135, EcoGeen F4 is for $107. Which one would you pick ??
Can you guys throw some suggestion?

I would pick the Samsung for the added space, that it is slower is not going to affect at any point that you pulled up!
