Funny story here. This is the HDD that came out of my laptop when I upgraded that to an SSD (Samsung 850 EVO 250GB) and has been my mass storage ever since. It seemed to be failing in the laptop, but after a zeroing it on a mac, seems to be running fine. Of course, I won't be keeping vital data on it, but it works as video and mass media storage.

Old laptop drive I got when taking apart my nonfunctional laptop. Does whats asked, stores files acceptably. Would not recommend for OS as it was very slow in the laptop, hasn't broken after 4 years though. Don't buy it, there's cheaper options that are most likely more reliable and provide more storage.

I used it from a laptop, and been using it almost 5 years! No problems so far, but the speed is significant decreased! The windows boots up to 1min

So this is where it gets funky. I was on a tight budget and really didn't have the money to buy a nice SSD, a hard drive, or windows 10. So me being the resourceful person I am decided to rip this thing out of piece of garbage in the shape of a box called the Alienware alpha (some weird steam machine thing). Long story short it worked but my computer had a mental breakdown thinking it was an Alienware so I wiped the drivers and stuff only keeping windows 10. This thing literally sucks and apparently it's a laptop HDD even though the alpha is a desktop ???. Will definitely upgrade to WD 1TB and an SSD.

Cheap refub. from Newegg
Well these were bought in an emergency during my previous build, when I dropped my main HDD. They work fine considering the fact that I got these refurbished from Newegg for 12 bucks each! They get bogged down a good bit on startup but since I split heavy applications between the second one and my SSD, I never have that much of a problem even though these are only 5400RPM.

This is the hard drive that came out of my previous computer, an AIO Acer Aspire with the dreaded Intel Celeron in it. It works fine as program and miscellaneous storage and isn't as slow as the Western Digital. Also isn't as big, both in physical size and in terms of memory space.
