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.
These 2.5” hard drives will typically be used to upgrade laptops and games consoles due to their smaller size. They're compatible with many desktops too, but such systems are best suited to 3.5” drives which usually have a higher rpm and are thus faster. Make sure the height of the drive is the right size for your system.
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.
