    If your looking for budget drives then go for Hitachi 7200RPM 2TB(8500tk) or 1TB(4700tk).... Or you can go for Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB(5400tk), which are pretty much high quality..........

    One thing I've noticed about the Caviar Blue is that they become really hot. My 500GB drive almost always stays at 56C while my previous Samsung drive stayed at around 47C.

    Is the WD Caviar Green available in BD?

    It's a sad thing that Samsung sold their Hard drive business.I have been using a 250 GB samsung without any UPS for 2.5 years and still it runs so well and cool.

    Samsung F3 is not 7200rpm and i think he should go for Hitachi if that is 7200rpm. and if he can afford he should go for WD caviar black coz they are the best

    Samsung F3 is 7200 rpm ( check here ) & it's faster than Hitachi one .But the problem is Samsung has sold their hdd business to Segate.As a result in terms of warranty Samsung ones might make problem. So it would be wiser to choose Hitachi & if possible then WD cavier black.

    It shows that your pc's cooling system isn't that much good.For this your pc components lifetime may reduce.So better change you casing or add some more cooling fans to cool things down .
