Internal Storage for OS & DATA

Revolution

Hi,
My old Seagate 500GB SATA HDD is almost run out of space.
So,I need a new internal storage for my desktop.
Which brand & model should I chose ?
Budget is not much but 3K.
Don't want too spend too much on HDD cos they are neither reliable nor gonna last long.
Confused between Seagte,WD,Blue,black,Greed,Purple,RED etc.
Model names also confused me a lot.
32MB Cache or 64MB Cache ?
Pls mention Model No with suggestion.
I will online or offline(Chandni,Kolkata) which ever gonna be cheaper for me.

Thanks!
Got it.
Then I need to go with Blue & 64.
But,WD or Seagate ?
Is there a huge price different ?
If not then which one should I go for ?
I will not ask about reliability cos there is no such thing for HDD but sure I prefer better after-sale service/warranty coverage.

Go for WD. Good after sales service.

Always backup data in an external drive. Better if you keep 2 backup drives.

Based on your requirement, I’d suggest you to go with the WD Blue drive. The WD Blue drive is use of normal computing, daily use drives, solid performance and budget drive. WD Blue HDD models are available from 250GB to 1TB.

Thanks!

Damn!
Went to Chandni,Kolkata.
Checked few shops but WB Blue not available any where.
Only Green,Purple & Black.
But,when I asked the shopkeeper when I can expect WB Blue in near future I got reply from shopkeepers that WD stop manufacturing Blue and not gonna come again.
I don't why these shopkeepers always lie to clear their stocks.

Hi [MENTION=39710]Revolution[/MENTION],

For your information, any WD internal drive can be used as a storage and boot drive. In WD, there are different type of drives represented by different colors. The WD Purple drive highly recommended to use for Video Surveillance purpose but if you use it as a normal drive, it will function like a normal hard drive too. The WD Blue drive is use of normal computing, daily use drives, solid performance and budget drive.

For more information regarding the WD drives, please refer the link below:

if purple is available at almost similar price as Blue (priced less at few places), and has 1 more year of warranty, then why not opt for Purple?

Hi [MENTION=11717]dissel[/MENTION],

There are two differences between the WD My Book Essential and WD My Book is capacity and inbuilt software. The WD My Book Essential capacity is up to 4TB and WD My Book capacity is up to 6TB.

I would suggest though that you go for our more current products like WD My Book or WD My Cloud, because the WD My Book Essential is considered one of our legacy products now.

Good luck
