Best HDD for Desktop Use?

Looking to upgrade the HDD in my PC. I am thinking of getting 2 Seagate IronWolf 4TB drives and using it in RAID 1. Definitely want CMR and IronWolf 4TB seems to be one of the best value HDD's according to PC Part Picker.

    Define "Best". Best speed? Best reliability? Best price? Best noise? Best MTBF? Best helium vs air? Best what?

    Best would be an SSD solution, not HDD.

    • Best as in suitable for advanced users. SSD is too expensive for capacity needed.
