You can never go wrong with Western Digital, I like WD black if you want to put games on it too or WD red if you want it in a NAS.

Western Digital, Seagate, Hitachi, G-Technologies are companies that produce HDDs.

A company I worked at used it for all of their NAS devices, I've never seen one fail before and they run great.

Glad I can help, if you can spend the extra money it might be worth getting multiple drives and setting them up with RAID, it will make sure if one of the drives fails you have a backup of your data on the other. Black is marketed for gaming but it works great on any desktop, use them if you just need extra storage on a workstation. Red is perfect for NAS devices and servers, they are designed to be running 24/7 with constant reading/writing but they don't do as well in a desktop.

Very true, worked in computer repair for years, 90% of the dead drives I've seen have been Seagate.
