Aight folk. Hanukkah is just around the corner and I think I deserve to get myself a gift.
I currently have a 500GB internal Seagate 7200.10 32mb cache, which I backup to a 500GB Seagate external. I'm in need of some more space.
So I'm thinking about getting 2 1TB internal drives. I refuse to have any data not backed up because I would cry if I lost all of my stuff. I have a few extra hdd bays and sata ports, and I never unplug my current external drive, so I see no reason not to backup to an internal drive.
I'll probably keep my OS and programs on my current 500gb internal and move my videos, music, and pics to the 1TB drive (backing up to another 1TB drive).
My Seagate isn't too loud, but I wouldn't mind if it were a bit quieter, so I was thinkin about going WD this time.
I see that these are $85 w/ free shipping right now: Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EADS 1TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Is it ok to go with the Green line if I'm just using it for data? If I decide to install my OS and programs on it later, will it run slower?
$25 (x2) difference to get the Black ones... Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drives -Bare Drive
This Samsung one is $85 (no free shipping
): Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Any other recommendations? I'm also not set on my idea of getting 2 1TB internal drives if anyone else has a better idea given my current situation.
Thanks in advance
