Best Internal Hard Disks for Desktop PC in India

Internal Hard disk or hard drive is one of the most important components of your computer. It is the place where the operating system resides and you store all of your data. It is the main storage unit of your computer whether it is a PC or Laptop. A desktop hard disk is identified as 3.5 inch HDD width whereas a laptop hard disk is slimmer and is identified as 2.5 inch HDD. Here we talk about the mechanical hard disks for desktop PC and not the SSD or Solid State Drives. SSDs are expensive and are not available in large capacities. Solid State Drives are considerably faster than the traditional mechanical hard drives. They are only useful for storing operating systems so as to make your computer performance faster and decrease boot time.

Mechanical hard drives are cost effective and are available in huge capacities to up to 8TB or more. Their performance has increased considerably over time because of the use of better technology and also due to faster and higher cache memory. Seagate and Western Digital (WD) are the two most popular companies that make hard disks and other storage products. Here in this post I will list down the best internal hard disks for your desktop PC.
