    • I have always gone with Western Digital for all my hard disk drive needs, your mentioning desktop means that what you are actually looking at is an internal hdd right?

      In that case you can easily go with any of Samsung, Kingston or Western digital products.

      Toshiba drives aren’t bad too, so it all boils down to the brand that offers better support in your location

      • [Thanks Obasi Miracle! I need internal hdd. Today I check of suggested brand’s hard-dick. One of my friend also support me to buy Samsung…]
