So, it's been almost a year since I bought my desktop, and as the time is passing I am left out with less and less hard drive space to work with. I think now is the time I should invest into a new HDD. May be a 1TB or 2 TB hdd will be good.

Specs are as follows
Motherboard - Intel dh67cl [ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ]
Ram - 4 Gb [ it's pretty small by today's standards , but i am tooo lazy to upgrade from Windows 7 32 bit , to Windows 7 64 bit ]
HDD - Seagate Barracuda 1 TB Desktop Internal Hard Drive
Graphic Card - MSI Gtx 660 Twin Frozer
Processor - Intel i5 2500k
A dvd writer

that's about it folks/

"We are constantly looking at new hard drives, evaluating them for reliability and power consumption. The Hitachi 3TB drive (Hitachi Deskstar 5K3000 HDS5C3030ALA630) is our current favorite for both its low power demand and astounding reliability. The Western Digital and Seagate equivalents we tested saw much higher rates of popping out of RAID arrays and drive failure. Even the Western Digital Enterprise Hard Drives had the same high failure rates. The Hitachi drives, on the other hand, perform wonderfully."

Seems to go against what Newegg.ca reports with a 50% failure rate. However they seem to be recently released so only time will tell if Seagate QC issues have *dripped* into these drives.

Personally speaking I would look at the WD Black series only because of the 5 year warranty vs 3 years.

WD bought Hitachi's storage division. Seagate acquired Samsung's rotating storage.
