I would like to see what brand people prefer for their hard drive these days? I have switched brands throughout the years, but lately I have been using the Seagate 'Iron Wolfs' for my NAS. I know the WD reds are suppose to be good as well. For regular computers I always recommend a SSD or .M2 SSD if you have the option. I also have some old WD green drives that still work to this day. Speed might not be the best but they haven't let me down yet. As far as SSDs go Samsung hands down. I am surprised though, it seems that SSDs are dirt cheap these days, but spindle style hard drives havent's really dropped in price per terabyte.
