Deal Alert: Build A PC – HDD *updated*

There's a HDD for every kind of user

With competitive prices and the availability of larger capacity Solid State Drives (SSD), the traditional Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is slowly becoming obsolete as the main storage drive of choice in recent PC configurations. But their low price and XL size capacity mean we still love to use them as a backup drive.

Today in our weekly series, we are sharing HDD deals that are worth your consideration. But not all drives are the same. Some are better at long term storage, some target gamers, and some are just for general use. While they all work as a storage medium, each has different read and write speeds and storage longevity.

So what we present this week is a variety of drives, that are suited for different systems such as a PC, NAS, or gaming computer. 

If you missed any of our previous Deal Alert: Build A PC weekly series, you can catch up on them here.
