Hard drive

was wondering what would the best type of sata hdd be for my asus desktop?

According to this www.backblaze.com/blog/hard-drive-reliability-update-september-2014 HGST (formerly Hitachi) are the best. Western Digital are next. Seagate are a bit risky.

Go Western Digital for home use.

WD Black - 5 year warranty

HGST is a Western Digital brand now anyway.

I wouldn't bother with the WD Black as they're just too expensive for what you get - the Blue is fine as are the cheap Seagate 7200rpm models.

another $30 (for the 500gb) for an extra 3 years warranty is a no-brainer imo

best are SSD sata drives but not cheap.

what size do you require ?

5.25" is usually enough for most men, if they know how to use them properly.
