You're buying one of these from your local computer store, correct? If yes, ask which drive appears to have the best manufacturer warranty. I've had a couple of WDs fail over the last few years. HDs are a business gamble as to how long any one will last.

1TB hard disks generally offer much better capacity/price ratio and are much faster.

RETAIL (comes in a pretty box) WD drives generally carry a 3 year warranty and Seagate's carry 2 years. OEM or bulk drives (comes in an antistatic bag or plain box) give you a one year warranty from that store. So, what you buy and where you buy it matter.

In that case, for me it's a no-brainer: if Seagate = 2 years warranty, and WD = 3 years, but Seagate = 7200 RPM and WD = 5000 RPM, l'd go for the Seagate.
