What is the most powerful HDD hard drive?

Which HDD is the best? Note that HDD hard drives are much slower in general than SATA 3 SSDs and even slower than NVMe M.2 PCIe SSDs that are the best in terms of storage with low latency in reading, as in writing. However they beat the other technology when it is about the quantity of TB that we can store on them.
