Good Afternoon,

My original 2Tb Samsung HDD drive has just died and I'm after your assistance to choose a replacement.

I currently have 2 3Tb HDD and 2 SSD, one 1Tb and one 2Tb.

I am looking at replacing with another larger capacity (4 or 6Tb) or should I go with another SSD?

I would welcome your thoughts and advice

Many Thanks In Advance

You can save a lot of money by shucking a USB external drive. The HDD in them is usually the same as buying the bare drives.

One of the 3TB HDD in my NAS failed earlier this week. I also wanted to expand the capacity so I purchased a 6TB "WD My Book" external USB drive, removed the HDD from the enclosure and put it in my NAS.

I'll need to buy another 6TB HDD to make use of the full capacity but I can wait till black Friday as there's usually good deals on the USB external drives.

Hey, my old WoT buddy. Like the others have said, what are you going to use it for? No point spending lots of dosh on SSD if your just sticking infrequently used data on it.

Thank you so much for your help.
I'm use my PC mostly for games so I'm thinking a fast HDD or SSHD drive as my other 2 SSDs are almost full. I'm leaning toward a 4Tb SSHD or like IRobot said I can remove the drive from an external
