A hard disk drive (or HDD) is a high capacity device used for data storage. Data is written on the hard drive using magnetism. The size and purpose of HDDs vary, therefore choose one that best suits your individual needs.

Hard discs can basically be divided into the following categories:

  • Drives for PCs - for common work on a PC
  • Drives for NAS systems (Network Attached Storage) - drives for network devices that operate 24/7
  • Drives for surveillance systems - drives that continuously write data and operate 24/7
  • Drives for data centers
  • Drives for demanding applications (can be replaced with SSDs) - for gamers or graphic designers
