Chances are this new storage unit will house some of your most important information, meaning it needs to be big enough, fast enough, and secure enough to meet your specific needs. At one stage (not too long ag0) it was easy to decide which drive to buy when building a computer: a spinning drive (HDD).
A solid state drive (SSD) option was simply too expensive and could not offer the required capacity. That is certainly no longer the case, with SSD not only being cheaper than ever before, but around 900% faster and twice as reliable as a standard HDD. A 120 GB SSD will be more than enough to install Windows and a few applications, while 256 GB should be enough room to store a modest number of games along with all of your other applications. Despite the lower costs, SSDs still haven’t replaced mechanical hard drives, which offer the best GB-per-Rand on the market. We suggest a bare minimum 500GB HDD if you plan to just use you PC for day-to-day work and at least 1 TB if you plan to do any sort of modern gaming.
SATA is still the most popular interface available, although other formats like SATA express and M.2 are slowly becoming viable.
There are three generations of SATA, with the latest, SATA 3, capping at 6Gbps (about 770MBps).
The performance of a consumer-level HDD is determined by many factors, but revolutions per minute (RPM) is an important one. Before buying a hard drive, you first need to be certain of what exactly you plan to use it for. Media-holics may need to get a larger drive if you plan to save your entire movie and music collection (at least 1 TB).

Many hard drives now feature the option to automatically back up your storage directly into the cloud. This allows you to download documents on any compatible device around the world, and gives extra peace of mind should one of your drives fail. Depending on your line speeds, this might be an obvious bonus as you can back everything to the cloud (size permitting). Alternatively, if you don’t wish to tie yourself down to a specific cloud service, you can find a complete list of Cloud Storage options here. When considering external drives, there are four main peripheral connection types: USB, Thunderbolt, FireWire, and eSATA.
There is also no clear performance difference between bus-powered (an extra power connector) and non bus-powered drives. While internal drives may not offer the portability of external hard drvies (for obvious reasons) there is an added layer of security knowing you can’t accidentally misplace your whole drive on the way in to the office.
As can be seen in the pricing table below, internal hard drives are also slightly cheaper than their external counterparts. In our personal experience, we have typically stored larger multimedia files (like movies and music) as well as work documents on an external HDD, as these are the files we are most likely to carry around with us. Perhaps the most important factor in any hardware purchase is how much you are going to end up paying. I usually pick up the 250Gb Samsung Evo 750 or Crucial BX200 SSD drives when they’re on sale on takealot for less than R999. If only drives was actually built to last for 25+ years, but then how would they make any revenue out of it?

On the other hand, spending the time and doing the right things will result in better rankings and more visibility for your business. Authors and publishers – writers and bloggers – often have a symbiotic relationship that allows them to build authority and increase traffic for both. Actually, they are all part of the same “monster” and they’ve been around a while, lurking under the bed waiting to come out of their dark corners. Install your OS and a few apps installed on the SSD and your larger files such as movies, music and games on the HDD.
