Hi guys, I really need to buy a new hard drive — but I am torn between the choice of a WD Black 4TB which is currently $309 on PC Case Gear or a Toshiba 4TB, which unfortunately they have stopped selling but other sites I think still do. However Toshiba also have the X300 series but I haven't found any reviews on them. I was wondering if possible if you could do a comparison on them regarding performance and their pricing?
