Hard Drives - Internal
Hard disks are used for storing masses of data in your system. They're mechanical, and slower than SSDs, but have the benefit of coming in much larger capacities – you can now get multiple terabytes in a single drive. Internal drives come in two main form factors: 3.5”, which you typically use in desktop PCs, and 2.5”, which are usually for laptops, though a range of convertor brackets are also available.
2.5” drives are significantly smaller than standard 3.5” ones, making them great candidates for upgrading the storage of your laptop or games console, especially as they're available in capacities up to 3TB. Remember to check the height of the drives, as most portable or console systems only have bays which support 9.5mm drives or less. Also pay attention to the spin speed in rpm; while all drive here use the latest SATA III 6Gbps interface, faster spinning drives will read and write data faster.

Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) is a data transfer protocol that is more enterprise focussed than SATA, which is the standard bus for regular consumer drives. SAS drives are more expensive per gigabyte, but they offer increased speed, longevity and improved error checking, which is vital for their intended use in enterprise, server and high-end workstation solutions. These 2.5” models are ideal for space-limited situations. 08/04/15 Designed to be used with mission critical systems such as servers, high-end work stations or any other users that require the best performance going to improve their systems performance.

These 3.5” hard drives utilise the newer SATA III 6Gb/s interface, ensuring as high speeds as possible with their mechanical technology, especially when using them in RAID. They're the most popular drives for today's desktop PCs, thanks to high spindle speeds, lots of cache and huge capacities. You can now get up to 10TB in a single drive, meaning even small form factor machines can store masses of media and games.
