Anyone using WD80EFZX HDD as usual desktop drive? Seems nice but the noise from youtube videos I watched seems worrying. Some like those old delta fan with the fan edge hitting cables. laugh.gif

Depends on how often and how fast you want to use the file (watching movie, network fileshare for music or video files, game file) if just to park your video files, seldom use documents or pictures then cctv is good enough since the cctv speed is 5400 rpm while barracuda one is 7200rpm.

Hows the noise during read/write? I read that and watch some youtube videos of the Ironwolf nas going jet plane ohmy.gif since its a NAS/datacenter hardware compared to green/blue/barracuda series which would be in desktop.

As quiet as 5400RPM WD RED 3T, since iron wolf is 5900RPM all HDD is install in a corsair casing. Jump to Seagate due to WD 'series' a lot RMA this my 2Nd seagate Nas Drive thought like save some going CCTV(skyhawk) series but choose Nas series. But going to try next for skyhawk for next purchase.

I thought of going to buy a 2TB Western Digital Blue hard disk and what I
read here is WD hard disks are not as good as it used to be. How depressing.

Hi guys,

Need your advice.

I am currently looking for a HDD upgrade.

My current HDD is Western Digital 3.5" 500GB 7200RPM SATA 6 16MB cache - WD5000AAKX

Can recommend me a HDD to upgrade with my budget under RM200? And if worst come to worst, can buffer another RM50..

Thank you in advance! notworthy.gif

Edit-
I found this forum https://forum.lowyat.net/topic/4557588

But I'm not sure if it's worth the upgrade.. hmm.gif

Hello guys,

I want to buy one more extra external HDD recently, looking for 4TB.

I did some research and found WD MyBook 4TB and Passport 4TB but the price different is quite a lot. Look around at Lazada found the MyBook is fetching RM6xx but Passport only around RM4xx.

So is there any difference between these two models? I only know MyBook need power adapter and Passport doesn’t.

My usage only copy data into it and keep, not going to plugging in all the time.

So could advice me which is better buy?

Thanks. smile.gif

usually it is better to buy enclousure + 2.5 HDD than buying those.
