I’ve gone for the Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB drive. This is a 7,200 RPM drive and features 64MB of cache; a robust, reliable drive that’s fast and offers generous storage space at a decent price.
When buying hard drives, it’s a good idea to choose a “bare drive” option rather than the “retail kit.” These retail kits come with all sorts of extras such as packages, drive rails, screws, instructions and so on that you’re unlikely to need. You can pay as much as $30 extra for the privilege of your drive coming with retail packaging as opposed to being shipped in a plain anti-static bag.
Have you tried this way to build up?or do you have any good ideas also to recommend?
