which one should i choose ???
I perfer the WD Blacks but I have the Barracuda as well and they are both great drives.
Black are 5 years warranty but comes at a greater price than the seagate... Both perform well and i don't think you'll have problem with either one of them...
Not though that there are newer Seagate drive then the 7200.11.. But my preference is still with WD.
My workplace had a rather bad batch of Seagate Barracuda's recently, so I'm with the Man on this one. WD.
Of all the Hdd's that I've had....Western Digital is by far the most reliable......never had one fail!!
I have Western Digital Caviar 7200rpm which is now 5 years old, no bad sectors. I have a Seagate from 2004 still works (never did dskchck). I say both companies are reliable you just can't beat beat them.

Thanks. I saw it on another forum lol.
WD Black would be the best of the two options for sure. Might I add that if you are building a new system get a SSD for the OS and your favorite programs.
yeah you can never go worng with WD
I prefer Western Digital... I think they should make 4TB Caviar Blacks already, its been so long.

Correct me if I'm wrong but don't you need a raid controller for anything bigger than 3TB?
i would go with WD Black

God, I wish that were true.
However, WD seems to be producing a better quality than Seagate recently. I imagine they have recovered more quickly than some of their competitors following the flooding in Taiwan, which destroyed many HD producer's equipment.
I still stand by Hitachi as being a very robust drive, even now. They are now building under WD's new HGST brand. HGST actually means "Hitachi Global Storage Technologies". They may not top the speed charts, but are more intended for workstations and file storage, they run a bit cooler than WD's black line, and just seem rock solid. However WD isn't giving quite the same warranty support, with these guys sitting at 3 years.
I would vow for WD or Samsung. The Samsung Spinpoint drives are pretty good with reliability and speed. Same with the WD Blue Series. For energy savings, WD Green Drives
I know it's been said many times already, but the WD Black is the way to go. Seagates are built for stability and longevity and are great long term storage drives.
Between those two choices, I like the WD Black. Good luck!
