    I need a new secondary drive and seeing as it's been a while since I bought a hard disk, I thought I'd ask for recommendations.

    I'm after either a standard drive or a hybrid depending on cost, at least 1TB.

    Any good deals about? Cheers.

    Hi there.

    The best choice depends more or less on what kind of applications are you planning to install on the drive.

    For instance, if you're after some light gaming and programming you can take a look at WD Blue which is meant for everyday computing and a lot of people are combining it with a SSD for their OS.

    Another option would be WD Black if you're more after performance since it has a firmware that will give you faster loading times (like a dual-core CPU for instance). It is designed for heavy gaming, big workloads and intensive file usage.

    Hope this helps and feel free to ask any questions you may have. :)

    ...and it got here this afternoon, about 23 hours after I placed the order. That's pretty mental. :lol:
