I’ve been doing a lot of research and can’t work out what the best drive is for my needs.
I mainly use my PC for recording, downloading and streaming TV and movies to my xbox/smart TV, i turn my PC on from afternoon till bed time. It records up to two shows at a time all night. When i’m watching live TV it time shifts the last hour or so which means non stop read writing for long periods of time.
I had a seagate as my only drive which has now died (more or less) so now i have a wd blue as my system drive and need to find a robust drive as my media drive. I want to take the stress off the system drive this time around.
I’m going to go for a 2TB and only have sata II ports so high performance drives might be wasted on me unless what i’ve read is right and sata III doesn’t add much extra, i"m also not willing to spend big money.
Can i use a DVR specialised drive or will a wd red be fine? Nether is designed for use as a internal PC drive but does that matter
Hope someone can help i’m so confused with all the choices
