For 50 euros on amazon.de I can get either a Western Digital WD5000AAKX 500GB internal hard disk (8.9 cm (3.5 inch), 7200rpm, SATA 6 Gb / s, 16MB Cache) Blue or a Seagate ST500DM002 500GB internal hard drive (8,9 cm (3.5 inch), 7200rpm, 16MB cache, SATA) Which would you guys get. The WD drive has SATA iii,but is it necessarie tor hdd's? are they fast enough to take advantage of it? They both have 16 mb cache, Are they worth the price?
Both drives are SATA III, but that doesn't matter for hard disks. I'd suggest the Seagate because it costs slightly less and it's compatible with RAID if you ever have a plan to use it in a RAID configuration.
