BUYING a Hard Drive (Need advice)

Looking to buy a fast, reliable hard drive. Can anyone recomend one?

I found this 1 http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002U1N95K/ref=noref?ie=UTF8&s=computers&psc=1

I was thinking of getting it but it seems to say in the description that its 5400 rpm and 7200 rpm? :S

It also states it has a 64 mb cache which seems a bit big for a 1tb hd.

internal or external?
#2
This is almost certinly a 7200rpm. 5400rpm is a typo.
#3
IF it's internal, then without a doubt this one!

Thanks for all the replies! Yes im looking for a internal HDD.

So from what people are saying, the Samsung F3 would be better even though it only has a 32 mb cache compared to the WestenDigital's 64 mb cache ?

Yes, the F3 is one of the fastest drives out there.

Cool thanks I think i'll get one off amazon as its the same price as ebuyer but with free postage :D
Thanks a lot for the advice people!

Sorted got a F3 off Amazon for just over £42 and 1 day delivery thanks to a free Prime trial. Just need to find out how to cancel it after the 1 month lol ;D

Found out how to cancel... was tempted by the £87 SSD today but its still twice what i paid for this HDD, Bargin!
