Which of these would be better for me?

Hi, first ever post. I'm looking at options for extra storage and I'm wondering which of these is better for me.

The purpose of the extra drive will be to store videos and import them into my editor. I have an amv channel on YouTube and my 500gb ssd is filling up so I plan to use the new drive and transfer the videos over, freeing up space on my main drive. Which is the better choice in your opinion? I wouldn't mind paying the extra money for the Seagate if it's better.

 

Thank you

If you have an empty drive bay in your PC then I'd go for the internal drive. Doesn't necessarily need to be an SSHD. A regular Seagate Barracude 2 or 3TB will be fine as well.

Thanks. Is it bearable to import and edit off of a normal hard drive?

Yeah it is, unless these are 4k video files. But also, you can just temporarily move your working files over to the ssd if you don't want any slowdowns. Move them back to the HDD when you are done with them.
