fastest 1.5Tb 2.5" HDD

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I've got a bit of a problem. I have a Acer Aspire VN7-791G Nitro and want to upgrade the SSD and the HDD, I contacted Acer and found that the max size SSD is 256Gb and the max size HDD is 1.5Tb, Iv'e decided on the "Samsung 960 EVO 250Gb SSD" but I'm struggling to find a decent fast 1.5Tb hdd ( I use it for gaming). There seem to be loads of 2tb and 1Tb so I wonder if there is anyone on here that could help me with my plight?

Thanks in advance


in the machine now

LITEON IT L8T-128L9G (128Gb, SATA600, SSD)

WDC WD10JPVX-22JC3T0 (1TB, SATA600, 5400rpm, 8Mb Cache)

There aren't that many differences in the performance of available 2.5" hard disks these days. :-/


That's a pretty recent laptop tho, it should take drives greater than 2TB, so I'd grab whatever 2TB disk looks good. Where are you seeing a 1.5TB limit? Actually I don't think anyone makes a 2.5" 2TB 7200rpm disk anymore, your best choice if you're okay with a smaller drive is probably a WD Black 1TB 2.5" unit, or if you prefer a SSHD (which might be faster, given how dated the WD Black 2.5" units are) the Seagate FireCuda might be the way to go.
