I got a 2.5" hard drive because I heard of people saying that trying to put a 3.5" HDD in the H200 was pain. I sacrificed on the speed and got a 5400rpm HDD and I kind of regret it now, especially when my game loading times exceed 1-2 minutes to load the match. Sometime in the future I will probably get a larger and faster HDD but until then this will be fine.

Came with a laptop I bought (and immediately replaced with an SSD). I use it to store games and other nonessential stuff. I personally wouldn't buy it otherwise, but it does the job. If you're going to get a hard drive, get a 7200 rpm one at the very least.

HDDs are cheap.
I'll buy a SSD (M.2 if possible) after my birthday.

Seems quicker than a 5400 would. Maybe Because my reference so outdated. Mass storage on the cheap. I got the 2.5 drive because I want to install 4Terabyte 7200rpm drives in the 2 large bays of the corsair. Basically I bought time (cost 50.00) to store stuff cheap until the twin 4TB are installed.

Slightly noisy and creates a ticking sound somewhat annoying sometimes... Planning to change it with an SSD soon.
