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.

500GB to 1TB 3.5" SATA Hard Drives

These 3.5" hard drives are available in 500GB, 750GB, and 1TB sizes and mostly 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.

500GB to 1TB 2.5" SATA Hard Drives

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 of 500GB, 750GB and 1TB. 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 most drives here use the latest SATA III 6Gbps interface, faster spinning drives will read and write data faster.

1TB to 2TB 3.5" SATA SSHDs (Solid State Hybrid Drives)

Hybrid hard drives combine a traditional, high capacity mechanical HDD section with a smaller, flash-based SSD section that acts as a cache, giving your system a boost in responsiveness. They won't be as fast as a pure SSD, but they're a great compromise between speed and capacity.
