    Junky HDD that I fished out from my previous system. Its been working for 4 years now so I can't complain really

    For free, I would totally recommend this. 50MB/s read, about 40 MB/s write. Random speeds measured in bytes but that's OK.

    It's a HDD, not much to say.

    I only use it for boot for a time until i buy an SSD, its good for the price and suprisingly fast for the price.

    An older drive I've used for over 5 years. It's a bit on the slower side compared to a 7200RPM drive, but it's served well as an internal backup drive. And for about 3 years, it served as a boot drive in my old system (1.5 years in an Athlon II X4 system, 1.5 years in a Sandy Bridge i3 system) before I got an SSD.

    A bit outdated, but it gets the job done. excellent if you get it second hand and it's not been used much.
