Maybe someone has something else, to recommend? Please, share your ideas and thoughts.
The max price for me is 120-130$
And what I need is:
- Large storage
- Good read/write speeds
- Kinda quiet and fast
- Sata II or Sata III, it doesnt matter.
- Good quality
Larger sizes in your price range tend to start sacrificing speed and reliability, while also sporting very weak warranties. You can catch a Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB on sale now, but the warranty is only 1 year. The caviar greens sacrifice a bit of performance for low cost/low power, but are some of the quieter drives. Check the comments for failure rates before settling on one, and you should be fine.
