I need the Seagate FireCuda 120 SSD 1TB because I have a gaming/ cruncher hooked to my 1080 TV and just have 2 spinners. A 500GB hitachi 7200rpm laptop HDD, for OS and a few programs. Plus a 2 TB WD black for Games and storage. It's a 2700 w/ a RX580. It runs alright but the boot times could use a boost! Plus, I am currently unemployed, until I get a call, and I just broke the bank, thinking I would be working, on a new build for crunching. So, this would make a good kit, worlds better!!

I need the Seagate FireCuda 120 SSD 1TB because saving fluids simulation results in hdd make the cuda code run slower, some cases is 50% loss in performance, which depends on saving frequency.

I need the Seagate FireCuda 120 SSD 1TB because my 750GB hard drive is almost full and its power on time is 44308 hours (just over five years) which means it might fail soon and my data is just too darn special to put into the hands of Cloudmasters.

I need the Seagate FireCuda 120 SSD 1TB because in about 2 weeks I have to drop a couple grand to get my wisdom teeth out due to the bottom having been growing in at a tilted back angle, leaving them growing into the back of my jaw and not allowing proper cleaning anymore....one cracked in half so they all need to come out now and I need something to lift my spirits.

Almost 40 years old and I get to get my wisdom teeth out!
I hate having teeth pulled.....had 6 removed over the course of 4 years as a kid to get braces. Canines pulled around 8.5 years old, then had top braces for about 2.5 years. Got them off and I was floating! On top of the world! My braces were off! My parents never told me I'd need more work done....so to my surprise; back into the dentist to have 4 more teeth pulled (2 top molars and 2 bottom molars that I hadn't lost yet). Then on to top and bottom braces for nearly 3 years. Ever since then these damn dentists have been telling me that I have plenty of room for my wisdom teeth all these years and they keep saying they're coming in great.....bleh. I'd have rather had them out as a teenager then now...at least I wouldn't have to be paying money if they were removed in my teens.

I even get to spend $50 for a "covid cleaning/disinfecting service"....I guess they want to make some extra cash where they can. Makes you wonder if these companies that now claim "they clean really good now" were even cleaning good before.....scary, huh?

Also, I'd like to move off my 250GB SSD since it's nearly full.

I need the Seagate FireCuda 120 SSD 1TB because _______?

I need the Seagate FireCuda 120 SSD 1TB because for me more storage means more installed games, which means more time staying at home and playing them. It also means more space for work files and other content, which is very important because working from home is now a new normal.

Even if I don't win I want to say thank you, Seagate, for not only giving all of us an opportunity to win such an amazing drive, but most importantly indirectly encouraging us to #StayAtHome to upgrade our PCs, play games, create digital content and other cool stuff.
