Solved Which Hard Drive to get? Tags: Hard Drives Western Digital Storage Last response: January 27, 2013 7:34 AM in Storage Share DelightfulDucklings January 27, 2013 4:47:12 AM Hi just wondering which HDD I should get for my new gaming PC, will just be used to store games and general storage. OS will be on an SSD. I've narrowed it down to be between: 1) The Seagate Barracuda 1TB 2) The Western Digital Red 1TB Intellipower 3) The Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB Is there really any difference? Price difference is negligible More about : hard drive Best solution phil22 a c 79 G Storage January 27, 2013 5:59:54 AM I can help you narrow that down a bit more: Don't buy a Seagate - WD drives are much more reliable. And that isn't just what I read somewhere, it's based on my own experience of those two brands over a period of 15 years.
