I'm looking for a 1.5 tb hard drive, to store my music, photos and videos. I'm not planning to make a backup of them (since they're not that important like family pictures etc.). That doesn't mean I don't care much about the data- I find reliability the most important thing concerning hard drives.
My question is: what would you suggest as a good reliable hard drive. Besides reliability it should be fast (although I don't find that really important), preferably with metal casing and most of all quiet.
I'm especially interested in the WD Elements 1.5TB and the Samsung Story Station 1.5TB. Of these two, which one can be most recommended? Or is there another one (on the same price level) that you would suggest? Thanks in advance!
