Thread: New hardrive
31-07-2011, 08:45 PM #1
Picking up a new hardrive for my gaming PC, 500GB (Anything more is extra money for redundant space)
Anything I should bear in mind when making my choice?
Basically if any of you could say "Well I use this one here and have no problems" that would be great
And what's the difference between a 2.5" and a 3.5" hardrive?

2.5" are mostly used in laptops. A few people have them in desktops as they can be quieter but you'll pay more for the same storage and they're usually slower too. I've got a Samsung F3 and they are generally well thought of. Quick, fairly quiet and pretty cheap. You should be able to find a 500gb one for around £30. Pretty much every self builder I know has one.

Don't want a standard price? Get the overpriced Velociraptor at almost £200! (you get 10.000 rpm, but at a high price).
Want an even higher price and even greater speed? Get the OCZ Revodrive 3. 480 GB for only 1200 Euro. But you'll get 1GB read and 900 mb write speeds per second. Which is at the top for SSD harddrives.
