No reason to wait if you need the storage space.

Some people swear that WD is the best others that Seagate is the best. They are both putting out solid drives. Just avoid WD green for system drives.

If you are planning on buying a system then follow this guide and post in the new build sub forum.

yup for 4 years now n counting. along with d drive.
from where i download all stuff, watches, read, write, doc, n almost everything.
then i have seagate drive, same period, but i feel that is weaker than WD green as it makes lot more noise, so i keep it for my storage only n which i access rarely.

Thanks for the info. I have heard other people who have used the drive and have constant problems with the power saving features of the drive. I have seen 2 of them fail and go for the reds now, luckily they died a slow death and managed to recover the data.

i also had drive problem both with WD n seagate. lucky was able to get it exchange in recover when they had 5 years plan for it :) 

but now since i am going for 1TB, that why i am confirming it. As that 1 tb will be for streaming, storage, mainly, n might even use it for download through utorrent too.

May as well get the 1TB now, they will slowly reduce in price but not enough to wait for a price drop.

Look around and pick your HDD based on price, might be able to find a good deal. Again, I would avoid the Green, but it seems to have worked for you so far.

i am thinking for seagate this time. as the price is only Rs. 200 cheaper then green (that is $1.3) as i decided as i will be using it more on streaming as well. as planning to get led TV too near the end of the year. while i will be streaming for tablet, mobile, movies n other stuff thnk for the help
