HDD's, below 1TB

Overclockers UK Seagate FireCude 500Gb Hard Drive HD Storage Solutions Under 1 Tb

What are the benefits of HDD’s under 1TB?

There are a few things to take into consideration when purchasing storage devices. Different types of hard drives are optimised for different tasks, whether it’s gaming, enterprising or surveillance. HDD’s that are 1TB or under have amazing price points and fit budget-minded PC setups. In terms of how much storage 500Gb or 1TB actually is, we need to take a look at the size of games. Modern games and AAA titles can be under 10Gb or over 80Gb. With that in mind, Here’s a table with a breakdown of media storage potential on HDD’s under 1TB:

HDD sizeMax songs storedMax movies stored
250Gb 5000 62
500Gb 10,000 125
1Tb 20,000 250

A HDD’s RPM (rotations per minute) is used to measure the speed at which it delivers data. Whether you have a desktop or a laptop, chances are your HDD has an RPM of between 5400 and 7200. 7200 RPM gives you 33% extra delivery speed above the 5400 RPM. The Cache memory of a hard drive is more important if you multitask on a PC. How it works is, some bits of information will get stored in the HDD’s cache so that next time you pull up the data, the HDD doesn’t have to get it from the platter and this speeds up overall performance.

What’s the best hard drive form factor for you?

There are two physical types of computer hard disks: 3.5” and 2.5”. Both of these variants utilise the latest SATA (Serial ATA) connections. In general, 3.5” HDD’s have a higher capacity and are faster than 2.5” HDD’s. The benefit of 2.5” HDD’s is that they tend to require less power but they are a little slower. 2.5” HDD’s are ideal for desktops and in smaller form factor machines due to the lower overall power in the system. Both 3.5” HDD and 2.5”s are interchangeable, provided the system can physically take the dimensions of a drive.
