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.

from completed build Blunt Force Trauma

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.
