An Excellent Compromise

Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 2 TB

Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 2 TB
If you're not interested in an SSD because they're too small, too expensive or whatever, then the Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 makes a good alternative for a system drive. With a 7200 RPM spin speed and a good access time, it offers a good trade-off between performance, noise output and price.

Low-Cost SSD

Crucial M4 128 GB

Crucial M4 128 GB
Very similar to the Samsung 830, the Crucial M4 it a top-quality SSD thanks to excellent performances (although it can't quite match the Samsung on write speeds) and high levels of reliability.
