    Default 2Terabite Toshiba or WD?

    i wanna buy 2T hdd... not sure whether to buy toshiba or WD.... according to ryans website the wd one is green... green means low data transfer rate right? so should i buy toshiba and save 400 bucks? is Toshiba as reputed as WD? suggest me guys (please dont suggest me samsung or hitachi hdd, and dont suggest me ssd)

    i am still not sure if i want 3T hdd though.

    how is the copy rate from one partition to another?

    WD has significant failure rate -- look online for most of their HDD reviews.

    Personal horror story - Amar friend er office e ei koi maash agey ekta WD red kinsey 7200rpm, 64MB cache, tao 9.5k diye. They put it in normal config for a look see/taste. It was slow. I mean slow like u click on a folder, goes inside and shows nothing; takes about 3-5 sec for contents to appear. Putting it in NAs yielded the same result in a more scary way. Some of their executables would take longer than usual to load or execute. They tried to use it for storage, same thing. Large folders upon clicking would freeze 3-5 secs and then go inside. Even if u have faced this once, they'd face it again within next 3 minutes.

    They plan to RMA.

    I have been using a WD since Jan 2014 1 TB. Works nothing exceptional, but usual performance. Sometimes I do feel that access times r slow, tho not as the RED.

    Thanks for opening this thread. I myself am in the mkt to get a 2TB.

    I feel the 3TB segment is still quite nascent. Not many users r there. Not much products and/or competition. Not a lot of comparable performances. Sticking to the tested 1TB and 2Tb cud b a wise choice. By the time ur 2TB gets old u can upgrade to a tested 5TB (whom knows?).
