I am looking for a 2,5" 2TB 9.5mm HDD that will be used for downloads and daily backups, so data will be written to it often. Then I guess I should be looking for a PMR disk but they look difficult to find these days.
Not really concerned about speed / performance, so could do with a 5,400 RPM disk. More concerned about durability and quality.
I could do with a 1TB disk as well provided it is worth going for it instead a 2TB Toshiba L200 (SMR) for example.
The M9T is too expensive.
I am ignoring all disks with a 128MB buffer, as they are SMR.
It has to be available on amazon.es, so these are the options / prices I have available:
Toshiba MQ01ABD100 1TB - 52€
HGST Travelstar 7K1000 1TB - 73€
Hitachi Travelstar 5K1000 1TB - 67€
WD Blue WD10JPVX 1TB - 54€
Which one would you choose? Or at least, which one you would never choose?
Please don't tell me a Seagate is the best I can get !?
