Bad experiences with hdd from new egg, used or open box shipped as new, and the retrun process customer service was unpleasant. I will never buy storage from them ever again.

What's the best PVR (DVR) drive to get around 2 TB? I use MythTV with about 10 shows a day if that helps.

As a gamer, unless you only have room for a single 2.5" drive (ie, laptop or console) I would avoid the 2.5" FireCuda's since they run at 5400rpm, and performance will be awful if the data you need isn't already stored on the 8gb SSD.

I just personally switched from a 128 GB SSD to a 2TB Firecuda 3.5" drive as my main drive. I cloned it and all, it works great for the time being. There are a lot more positive reviews than negative ones. Mine boots up almost as fast as it did off the SSD.

It is sold by a third-party and the coupon does not apply.

$62.19 after sales tax for the 1TB Seagate FireCuda. Kinda leaning more towards the WD Black 1TB at B&H for a couple bucks more at $64.99: LINK [bhphotovideo.com]

Nice deal on the SSHD, but I'm a little confused what one needs a 60GB SSD for? Just as a system drive? And why is it $30 for a SATA III SSD (50 cents/GB)?

if you have a desktop/laptop which have slots for multiple drives, then this can be used as a fast boot disk and your data can sit on other slower discs.

The WD Black 1TB is a great drive, I have this as a secondary drive in my desktop and it is very reliable, not too loud, and very fast for a spinning disk. Especially if you're just storing stuff or doing intensive file work on it (I mostly use it for transcoding BR rips), it's really a nice choice.

The 3.5" FireCuda's are 7200 rpm drives, plus if your using it as an OS drive those files are going to be kept in cache.
