I have 500GB hard drive that I ripped out of my old hp computer to put in my gaming computer that I was putting together at the time. Because at the time I was about to enter freshman year for college and I was on a budget. It was a reliable hdd for the four years that I stored game, music, and photos on and it would save my some money because I was running on a budget. I would love to get a hard drive upgrade.

1. I have a Sony Vaio laptop which I have replaced the main 750GB HDD with a 128GB OCZ Vector SSD for speed, boot time and compiling (I'm a student studying Software Development) and I have then replaced the Blue-ray DVD drive with the old HDD in a caddy for storing all my files, projects and assignments. On top of that I use a 250GB external Seagate drive for backups :D

I use a 128gb Crucial SSD for boot drive and my most used programs like text editor, compiler and a few games. Then I have my 1TB WD black for movies, photos and music and then I also have an old 360gb Seagate for stuff I don't really care for but have to put somewhere, I also do have some of my duplicate files on there. 

I would really love to have a larger SSD or just more SSDs in the future together with a NAS for our shared appartment, so we can easily share files and have a local storage that is more than what I'd put in my desktop since I move it a lot and it's already heavy as it is.

I use a 128G plextor M5 pro SSD for my root and boot partitions. I use a WD Green 2TB for my /home and /var partitions. Arch Linux allows me to easily store data in ram and regularly sync in blocks to both drives. The SSD's speed is maintained by mininmizing writes and implementing TRIM effectively. With this setup, the WDGreen can do what it does best and cycle off to conserve power.

I would put the WD Red Drives to Fantastic use as I was given an old HP dual Opteron server that only needs storage to get up and rolling!

I have a 1TB Samsung HDD. I built my computer about a year ago, and having a good hard drive wasn't a priority to me, especially since I was building on a budget. I would like to have an SSD, but for now that's not a priority.

120GB Samsung 840 evo: For boot and a couple most used programs and games

 

500 GB WD RE4: For games and programs

 

1TB WD Scorpio Blue: For backups 

 

I use this because I love the speed of an SSD but its too expensive for everything. I only have the 1TB hard drive because it was for my old AVerMedia capture card I used to have.

I have a refurbished 120gb HDD for a boot drive, because it was cheap, and a 0.5 terabyte external HDD. I have 87 gigs on the external and 14 gigs on my HDD. I mostly use the storage for music and games.

2 128GB vertex 4s in RAID0 because at the time they were the best $/gb for reliable non sandforce drives and they offered the best performance I could afford ($100 each new) I use them for my OS and some applications. I also have a 1tb seagate barracuda for mass storage which includes many steam games and backups.

I currently have a 320 GB hdd that my friend lent to me because my previous 750gb hdd died on me. I'm currently a student and would much rather spend my money elsewhere. But that being said, I'd be since to have more storage for my games....

I currently use a 300GB SATA 2 Boot Hard Drive because when I was building my new system, It was already there so I didn't want to spend money on an SSD. I also have a 1TB Hard Drive because I make a lot of videos and I like to store them. I also keep my games on my 1TB hard drive. Along with those two, my dad has a 4TB NAS set up and I have a 250GB external USB2.0 Hard Drive. I could really use the extra space on my desktop because I do a lot of editing.

I am running a 64gb OCZ Vertex3 as a boot device and 3 old, scavanged 1TB Seagate Barracudas in raid 5, any of which could fail anytime. I have this set up purely because of price, the ssd was the only affordable to me at the time (but still over £100 then) and the 1 tb drives were all free (for a little labour). However, I am building a pfsense style uber router from an old machine and would use it to build a portable recoding PC with network storage that I would add to until I can run it in a raid 10 array. Bwahaha the ultimate storage solution for my ever expanding amount of uncompressed audio. I'm a sound engineer, and I HATE having to delete takes and cannot afford to lose data.

I have a 500 gb Hitachi Deskstar Hard Drive had to upgrade from 160 gb to have more space for games and some movies. I couldnt afford an 1tb HD so I ended up finding this one on ebay used for $23.

1. I use no ssd because money. I use a 1.5tb seagate boot drive and a 3tb sea gate HDD, never used nor tried western digital, i heard they had a high failure rate so always been to scared. anyone have experience with them? what are they like? have they failed on you?I use 

I used 8 HDDs (which I am shure they are from WD) in my abput 9 PCs. I only had one IDE 30 GB Maxxtor Mac HDD failed and one Corsair Force 3 120GB SSD (it was used completely false), who failed.

Some of them are over 10 years of age. Most of them are aged 1 to 3 years - without any known issues.

Hi Linus,

 

I have a Samsung 840Pro 256GB SSD as my one and only internally mounted disk. I chose the 840Pro 256 as I've had a Samsung 830 in my T420 Thinkpad running Linux for a year and I've been happy with it. The 840 Pro seemed like one of the fastest and most reliable options and less expensive than intel. I was put off by the regular non-pro 840 because of the less reliable memory. I have plans to add some sort of additional storage at some point - I want to add another SSD with a hard wired power switch to switch between the 2 SSDs (The current one running Win8/steam and the new one running Linux) and I'd like to add some reds (case has 5x140mm fans!). So for the moment I'm relying on an external Seagate 1TB drive for storage.

 

Ian
