Closed Help me pick a hard drive Tags: Hard Drives Storage Product Last response: April 16, 2012 8:15 AM in Storage Share thegamecpt April 15, 2012 1:05:45 PM Hello, I have a Crucial M4 SSD as system drive, and I'm looking for a quiet, fast response HDD mainly used for media storage, torrent downloads. Does "access time" have impact on performance? I have two choice now, WD caviar Black 1TB and Samsung EcoGreen F4 2TB. They are about the same price on Newegg. Would you recommend other HDDs?

Its a 5 year warranty. Its a faster drive. I use this exact same drive for the same purpose you do. I never have any issues. I have been using WD drives for years, I have not had one fail yet.

But is there now a difference between the Western Digital antedeluvian drives and the post-Thailand Flooding of 2011 drive quality? I believe that is the meaningful comparison. thegamecpt April 16, 2012 12:54:12 AM Best answer selected by thegamecpt.
