I'm a fan of the Barracuda Pro HDD's, they have 5 year warranty and 2 year free of charge data recovery in the event drive dies and data is lost.

On paper the Barracuda (yes, spelling counts) is faster.

  1. Whichever is cheaper
  2. WD initially, but seagate has come a long way since their high fail rates in the 2000's. So they're roughly the same now.
  3. Theyre the same
  4. Theyre the same
  5. Theyre roughly the same

I have a 3TB and a 5TB WD Black hard drives (both for four years now). I really like them but they are loud (my case is very open though) I cannot comment on how loud the Barracuda Pro drives are, but I imagine being a 7200RPM performance hard drive it would be similar. 

 

Just get the cheaper one.

The Barracuda and the Black perform about the same, you should get the cheapest of the two. The Blue is slower, I'd avoid it.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

IRL both drives offer similar speeds, it's not like you're comparing an ATA66 to a SATA3 here

Fairly sure the answer will be the same as above.  They are the same drives you're asking about earlier, just now one is 8TB instead of 6TB. Even if they bumped cache or something, you won't notice a thing.

 

You realize they're just hard drives right?  Material quality will be the same, no carbon fiber or advanced nanocell technology.

Slow down and relax a bit, you're anxiety is coming thru clearly.  

 

Since people say one is better, then others say the other is better... kind of means they're about equal and so close that no one can really come to a consensus.

 

Personal preference on the brand is most likely what is going on.

 

Get whichever you want, either will serve you well.  You're in good hands with them.

Did you even read what I wrote?

 

They are the same.  Same materials.  Same way they work.  They have different controllers that do the same exact thing, read and write data to a platter :)
