I currently have 2 hardisks of 4TB Barracuda (non-Pro) for gaming storage old and new games , avi and mp3 files that I don’t want to thrash my SSD constantly with.
But my hardisks are SLOW. As it’s got more full it seems to slow down more and more, which I know as you get to the inside of the platter there is slower speeds but the slow speeds seem to effect the entire drive. No fragmentation, tried everything, no smart errors, just want to replace it at this point.
Between the choice of the Barracuda Pro (which I’ve heard is a lot better than than non-pro Barracuda) or the WD Black (which is £30 more expensive). Is there clear better choices? like blue, western ultrastar??, red pro and purple for destop use?
which from these 6 hardisks are you advice me to buy? for gaming storage and etc??
also i have one another question which are the Differences between WD Blue vs. Black vs. Red & Purple HDD ?
can the red and purple be used for gaming storage and for destop use? like blacks and blue?
