Which internal HDD?

    Hi folks,

    After a bit of advice... I'm looking for an internal HDD and have found a couple of good deals on ebuyer.

    I'm a bit clueless as to which manufacturer would be the best option as I have no previous experience with either of them.

    Just after some recommendations or your personal preferences!

    Options are:

    Western Digital WD5000AAKB 500GB Hard Drive 7200rpm 16MB Cache - OEM…413

    Hitachi Deskstar 7k500 500GB 7200RPM ATA/133 8MB Cache - OEM…662

    Your advice is appreciated!



    Hi kizzsmyth welcome to HUKD! :P

    I'd go for the WD one.

    I used to use WD when i built a few PCs it also has a 16MB Cache, double the size of the other one.

    Hi Emma, many thanks for your welcome note!

    T0mm - cheers for the advice. I was leaning slightly more to the WD option, it's good to know you have successfully used them in the past.

    You may find this unhelpful, but I could throw a 3rd HDD into the ring - I recently bought this Samsung 500gb and it had good reviews on this site (do a search). I'm pleased with it, but could not compare with the other two.…rue
