Define Your Storage Needs

It is practically easy to buy a hard disk these days. With large storage capacity, you would have to consider what files you would place in them. If you are the hardcore techie freak, chances are you would be thinking videos and audio files to which you can easily download today over the web. But before we go a bit forward on everything, it would be best to potentially canvass and plan just how much capacity you really need.

Apparently, people will have no second guesses as far as what storage capacity to buy. The biggest of course! There would be only one thing in the way and normally it would be the area of price. These days, for a difference of a couple of dollars, you would surely get the next big storage capacity hard disk. No doubt that would be your first choice.

Next, many would consider the manufacturer. Normally it would be a toss up between:

1. Seagate
2. Maxtor
3. Fujitsu
4. Hitachi

You can really interchange which between Seagate and Maxtor would be your preference. Others turn to the little known brands, Fujitsu and Hitachi for saving and disregard on durability. They may cost less but if there is one thing that you have to consider is the fact that they may not necessarily be reliable especially in the long run. Bad sectors and warranty issues may come into play but knowing hard disks, it takes so much for them to be displaced and unreliable.
