I think it more depends on the model you pick. maybe list some potential hard drives you are thinking of


PC specs:

Ryzen 9 3900X overclocked to 4.3-4.4 GHz

Corsair H100i platinum

32 GB Trident Z RGB 3200 MHz 14-14-14-34

RTX 2060

MSI MPG X570 Gaming Edge wifi

NZXT H510

Samsung 860 EVO 500GB

2 TB WD hard drive

Corsair RM 750 Watt

ASUS ROG PG248Q 

Razer Ornata Chroma

Razer Firefly 

Razer Deathadder 2013

Logitech G935 Wireless

WD and Seagate both have good drives. Get what's cheap and performs good. Depends on what you're using it for.

a 2TB HDD costs around 60$ while a 2TB SSD costs upward of 160$

Can you show me where I can get a 4TB SSD for less than $100? Would love to buy one for that price.

WD and Seagate are both pretty decent.  I use hdd.userbenchmark.com to compare speeds.  Be aware that WD neutered their Blues in the newer models - they're much slower.

Location isn't going to make the price of a 150$ MSRP SSD 60$ just because you live in x or y

2TB HDD vs 120GB SSD

 

back to topic, both are good but I'd go for seagate over WD
