    Hi guys,

    My ext HDD died on me this week and I need a new drive for storage but thought I would go internal as I have the space and they are better drives too.

    Which would you pick? Could be from personal experience or having read up on them but I'd like to take a consensus.

    Samsung F3 1TB 32mb cache (£58 OcUK)

    WD Caviar Black 640GB 32mb cache (£53 OcUK)

    WD Caviar Black 1TB 32mb cache (£80 OcUK)

    The size of the two WD drives doesn't bother me much but if one drive performed better than the other then that you sway it.

    From what I've read so far, not much can match the samsung for price/gb/performance but if the 640GB WD out-performed it then I would happily order that instead.

    Thanks in advance

    (sorry I know these drives have been covered a lot but I wanted a recent vote)
