Thread: Which Hard Drive?

  1. #1
    Should I get one 1TB hard drive or should I get two 500GB hard drive? Which should be more effective? I have found good price for both of them the Hitachi 1TB $230, and the Fantom 500GB $90, two should be $180.

    Seriously you should get Seagate's drives because they are just awesomely reliable. Cost a bit more but it is well worth it. Or even Western Digital but whatever you do, dont get those 2 you mentioned.

    If you must pick those you mentioned, get 2x500GB.

    I've never even heard of Fantom HDDs before so I just did a bit of Googling...not a real good rep.

    Apparently, they are notorious for using remanufactured/recertified drives in their external cases and have horrible customer support.

    Personally, I'd go with a better known brand.
    I too am fond of Seagates but right now Newegg has a deal on WD 750GB drives...only $119, so you could get two for the price of one Hitachi and increase the storage capacity by 50%.

    Newegg is just astounding. I hope they will come to europe soon.

    The OP should jump on that newegg offer right now. It is very nice.

    Seagate drives are great for reliability.As for size or configuration it would depend on what you need it for.
