Sadly WD Green has some issues. Go for WD Black by increasing another 2k.

Can't spend more.Saving money to buy 22" inch monitor.Already posted the question regarding monitor in tv/monitor section...
Seems WD is out of the league..Either Seagate or Toshiba..

Seagate takes time of 20-1month for replacement of defected product..The thing is if it persists,1 month is lot of time to wait :\...Don't know about Toshiba.
My friend has Toshiba external drive,using it from past 2years no problem at all...Is there any significant difference between internal and external drive?

Then get the Seagate 2TB SATA 6 Gbps HDD with 64MB Cache. This model comes with 2 years of warranty and better than both the Toshiba and WD Green HDD. price will be around 6.2K.

Go for WD 2TB Caviar Black @ 8k with 7 years warranty.
A. Its 5 yrs, not 7 yrs.
B. Where do you get these kind of prices from?

If you want to use the HDD for storage, get an external unit, else buy 1TB WD black WD1002FAEX, for 5.8k with 5 yrs warranty.

The very best in performance , reliability and after sales service Toshiba DT01ACA200 , 2TB 64MB buffer - Rs 5850 and 3 years warranty. No Seagate or WD offers that. It is faster than a Seagate Barracuda XT and a lot faster than the WD Green.

Who provides service for Toshiba? I think Rashi right, confirm this, one more reason to stay away from Toshiba if this is true.


Ah yes rashi: Product


Buy toshiba at your own peril :twisted:

You mean 2TB Black, the new model, the one with the 64MB cache? That is the FAEX model, the older FALS model had 32MB cache and a lot slower.

You are acting like a Troll and spreading very wrong information off late and its not helping anyone. If we go by your theory we should stop buying Asus,AMD,Logitech,APC,LG,Sandisk,Leadtek,HP and Lenovo since they are all supported by Rashi in one or many products. Be a bit more responsible when you type or post something. Think or look before you just post at random.I know you want your posts to reach 10,000,but hey you are not being any help.

No support company has been perfect. If you know of one please let me know. When you say something, not anything which you do, support it with some valid points and conclusions. Every body has a fault here and there. That dosnt make us privileged to take them for granted and just label them forever.

Okay, looks like you don't know much about Rashi, specially in kolkata, ask anyone who purchased an XFX 8600GT, or 9400Gs type card, it went to such extreme that Asus had to ditch rashi and go to Digilink, rashi is still the reason we don't buy xfx in kolkata.

Looks like you know nothing about anything.Nobody buys XFX anyways, because of the cheap quality they meted out to customers from 2007 onwards. The cheap SACON FZ ( have you even heard of them) capacitors they got from China and passed them off ass Solid State looking Electrolytic Caps which blew up in no Time. Had they been using stuff from ,Rubycon,Nichicon,Samxon Capacitors, all over they wouldnt have gone that bad. And there was the XFX heating up issue on some cards too. Know things first in details before posting at random.

This very SACON FZ spelled doom for EVGA too !! ( Ah now you know !!!):twisted:

Nobody could help XFX apart from XFX. Thats why not only in "Kolkata" but people shy away from XFX cards around the world, even today. Clear?

Here you are talking all BAD abot Rashis service and in the other thread you are going ga ga over Logitech Keyboard whish is also ASSd by Rashi.!!! AMazing.

Read the thread, both neoteric and rashi imports logitech, and you can get kb from either one of them, and again read the other thread, neoteric will service rashi items, at least in kolkata they do, and third, no, nobody buys XFX due to rashi and rashi alone, not due to Capacitors, as 99% people including me didn't have knowledge about these capacitors as I never looked at a xfx card after my 5850.

And finally, evga? IDK, they are still one of the most trusted brands in USA, afaik one of the only two brands getting the titan, and I have a GTS250 Super OC'ed from evga, still running fine after 4-5yrs I think, so your argument is rendered invalid about EVGA.
