    Depends on your budget, A 1tb platter drive is a lot cheaper than a 1tb ssd. You'll get more performance from the ssd

    You might want to think about a hybrid drive
    a 1 Tb platter with a big ssd cache
    lightning fast, and very little premium over a regular platter drive.

    WD for a platter drive, Samsung has the best SSD's

    I've seen both WD's and Seagate's fail, but I think Seagate drives have a higher failure rate. The WD's seem to be much older before they meet that big data god in the sky

    Thanks folks
    while I get most of my stuff off fleabay I was a little leery of this thing
    so I got it from my local dealer who has to suffer the complaints
    of people whose stuff doesn't work
    so far ( one year later) it's working fine.

    With conventional HDD's, I stay away from the two S's: Seagate and Samsung. I have a 160GB Western Digital that's nearly 10 years old with zero bad sectors. The only thing I worry about is the spin-up time, which is about 950 milliseconds according to Smartmontools, meaning the spindle motor is getting pretty tired. Sooner or later it will go to sleep and never wake up.
