Kinda generic there. For what? Desktop? Laptop? External or Internal? Low price? 2.5" or 3.5"? MHHD or SSD? Long-term storage? Sorry, too many variables just to toss a recommendation for a hard-drive. Kinda narrow it down so the experts here can recommend something you'll be happy with.

Thanks , sorry it's true it would be better if i give more explanation.

It's for a desktop internal hard drive to replace , i would like to have a ssd but the computer is used once a week so not worth spending the extra money for it. I suppose it would be 3.5" since it's a desktop.

Thanks

Then I agree with St0ney See Profile - he hit it perfectly the first time.

They don't make 500GB SSD hard drives...at least not yet.

I'd suggest a Momentus XT drive.
7200 RPM Large Cache & 4 Gb SSD Cache

I have a few of them... As Raid drives, Desktop drives, Laptop drives, USB walk around drives.... Storage for NAS units..

I'm quite happy with them!

Is this a jest or playing on exact specification? The lowest I've seen is a 20GB ... the largest (in 2.5) is 1TB (OCZ, Micron, LaCie, Crucial, Samsung). Anything in between and "close" to 500GB is what is being referred to. The Micron M500 is a steal at 600.00 (960GB) if you can find one yet.

I'm with 'ya - ever since I asked about the 500GB XT, 2--err--3yrs ago here on BBR/DSLR, I've bought 2 more for other desktops and 1 for a laptop. On MY (not my wifes or kids), I still use my OS on the OCZ Vertex2 and my data goes on the XT. Love them.

Kidding? Or just don't know?

Newegg shows 2 500 GB SSDs and 26 512GB SSDs for sale.
»www.newegg.com/Product/ProductLi···%20512GB
I think the actual capacity of the 512's will be close to 500 real GB.

Thanks but 369 $ is high for a computer who is not used a lot.
