Well, it depends. If you want more speed but at increased price, get a SSD. If you want something cheaper, go with a hdd. If you wan something with a lot of storage, get a hdd otherwise it will be REALLY expensive for a 1 or 2tb SSD. :)

Update (10/02/2016)

2 TB HD: Seagate 2 GB HD

2 TB SSD: Samsung 2 TB 850 EVO More on Samsung SSD's.

External HD if this is too expensive: (4TB): Weatern Digital USB3 drives

Can you give links to these options?


A good midpoint drive would be a hybrid (SSHD). With it you get the benefits of both the traditional HD for deep storage and a SSD for speed. In this case the SSD is a deep cache within the drive. I would go with a Seagate 1 TB w/32 GB flash


@gigabit87898 The OP requested information on a 2TB solution.


Oops, sorry :) I will fix it.
