Nowadays 1 Terabytes of hard disk drives become the entry level disk drive for every advance computer user who really uses their computer for more than internet surfing. 1TB is really a perfect match for all your nominal data storage solution because in one terabyte of storage you can storage around 50,000+ Songs, 100,000+ Pictures, 600+ Movies or 200+ HD Video clips at the same time in a single drive, isn’t that wonderful. And with the help of this article, I’ll definitely gonna suggest you a perfect 1TB hard disk drive for your computer or laptop, what you will definitely gonna love.




So, first I’m gonna starts with what things you’ll need to check before buying any Hard Disk Drive because not every Disk Drive is same and all different models come with the different specification and that specification decides the hard disk driver’s whole performance.

Here’s the list of few important things what you’ll need to see before buying any HDD:

  1. Size – HDD comes in three differ size, 3.5 Inch big drive what normally used in desktops, 2.5 Inch 9.5mm small drive what normally used in laptops and the third one is 2.5 Inch 7mm drive which is actually same looking as compared to 2.5 Inch 9.5mm drive but just 2.5mm thinner. So, make sure about the size before buying any and you can also look at your old system drive to confirm the size.
  2. RPM HDD uses a motor to spin the disk built in it, and the motor speed defines through RPM (Round per minute). So, higher the number is better.
  3. Cache HDD cache mainly used to process current process data and the only thing what you’ll need to remember is, the higher the cache size is, the better multitasking that HDD gonna handle.

So Let’s See The List

Actually, I made this list by calculating the Hard disk’s Performance what comes in best price range with also reading the users reviews on different websites.




#Best 2.5 Inch 1TB Hard Disk Drive & SSHD (Laptop Size)

Top 3rd HDD – HGST Travelstar 7K1000

Product Details

  • Size– 2.5 inch, 7MM
  • RPM– 7200
  • Cache Size – 32MB
  • Interface – SATA 3.0, 6 Gb/Second
  • Warranty – 3 Years
  • Price Tag – 60$ Approx.

Comment: HGST is the first manufacturer who released this slim 7200RPM 2.5 inch HDD in the market and from that time this hard disk is still popular now and the another great thing is, it become 20$ cheaper than it was before and now you can only buy this drive only for just around 50 dollar which really makes this disk a perfect budget guru.

7200 RPM with 32MB Cache size is enough for every normal computer user or a gaming console and believe it not but these days this disk drive becomes most popular for play stations and works perfectly great. And those who don’t know, HGST is the Western Digital brand and you can’t doubt on WD when it comes to a good hard drive.

Top 2nd HDD – Seagate Barracuda

Product Details

  • Size– 2.5 inch, 7MM
  • RPM– 5400
  • Cache Size – 128MB
  • Interface – SATA 3.0, 6 Gb/Second
  • Warranty – 2 Years
  • Price Tag – 55$ Approx.

Comment: Seagate is a leading brand in hard disk drive industry and this drive mainly or only for those who do some hardcore multitasking on their computer system and the 128MB cache capability of this drive will handle all the workload what you’ll gonna put on it. This drive is also the cheaper one in this category and having an only 2-year limit warranty which I really don’t like about it, but 128MB cache in around 46 dollars is pretty damn good by the way.

The one thing which I also wanted to make you clear about this HDD is, it’s not good for play station because 128MB cache won’t affect anything in performance but it really does in laptops. And if you’re only looking for the good budget disk with good performance for your laptops then this budget drive also won’t let you down either.

Top 1st HDD – Seagate Mobile SSHD ST1000LM014

Product Details

  • Size– 2.5 inch, 7MM
  • RPM– 5400
  • Cache Size – 64MB with 8GB NAND, SSHD
  • Interface – SATA 3.0, 6 Gb/Second
  • Warranty – 5 Years
  • Price Tag – 85$ Approx.

Comment: First of all I wanted to clean one thing about this drive, and that is it’s not a normal hard disk drive because this is an SSHD and SSHD means a combination of hard disk drive and solid state drive to deliver the high-performance storage solution in the decent price range. And in this 2.5 Inch storage device category, Seagate is really doing a great job because not a single HDD or SSHD out there who can actually compete with this drive till now and another great thing about this drive is, it’s ultra-cheap as compared to other SSDHs which really makes it worth buying.

Whether you use it in laptop or gaming console like PS4, you’ll gonna get ultimate performance and when I put this drive on my computer, my OS just opened in 10 seconds, pretty damn good right.

In my opinion, this drive is really worth having and the good part is “5 Years of Freakin Warranty Period” which really makes this drive to fall in Love with.

#In My Opinion

Or on the other hand, if you’re looking for a drive which you like to put it in your play station or in your gaming laptop or maybe for good data read and write performance than the Top Third (HGST Travelstar) is the one which I honestly suggest to everybody.

If you are the person who actually loves speed, ultimate speed like me, then just go for SSHD because that drive can do anything ultimately and not just that you can also put that drive in your console too and in my opinion spending around 85$ isn’t that expensive too. Or otherwise, the choice is yours.

Comment: Western Digital Blue is the highest selling desktop hard disk drive nowadays and whatever you do on your computer, this drive always get your back when it comes to the performance. I love this drive from when I assembled my first computer in 2007 and in 2014 I gave that drive to one of my friend and the great thing about this drive is, it think it’s been 9 years now and that hard drive still working perfectly.

This drive is very quiet and also won’t consume that much power supply either, which is actually great and I used this drive for around 7 years and I think I hardly found this drive gets overheated. And if you are using some old hard drive in your computer then replacing with this one might get beneficial for you, mainly performance.

Comment: First of all, this is the highest performer hard drive in the whole Hard disk industry in 1TB category and I don’t think so, there is any disk drive out there who can really compete this drive. And if you are a gamer then I don’t think this drive will let you down in any condition because this is latest FireCuda product of Seagate which is incredibly fast and only born to deliver high-end disk drive performance.

I know it around 80 dollars but it totally worth it because this drive has 8 GB NAND flash memory which can give you the solid state drive like speed while processing the data under 8GB which is actually enough storage space for processing data and can handle all your huge workload.
