Hey guys, I'm wanting to buy another drive, and maybe even today. But when looking at the available drives some say 600Mbps, 750, 768 and then some are saying 3000-6000! What the heck are they advertising there-6000Mbps, I'll take that one LOL?
I'm looking to buy from one of the local stores. Specs below:
1. 1TB as that is the most common that they carry locally and really the very most I would need, 500 would be fine.
2. 7200rpm, unless there is a reason someone thinks this is not important, though I do think it is important.
3. I looked at maybe a WD Black, but some were saying that they were a little slow, and they cost more?
Of course they have a better warranty, but that's not important to me now.
4. Or: Seagate?
What I think is an older drive, is showing to be Very Fast? 6000 megabytes per second
What I think is the newer drive is showing 750 megabytes per second
Then there is the Seagate which is showing 3000 megabytes per second
I'm quite sure this is some kind of bad labeling issue but I don't have the experience to know for sure. Apologies, I'm running out of time, but will leave this WD FORUM LINK that I found. It explains another question that I did not know, but still miffed about the speeds?
