seagate ST1000DM003 vs Western Digital WD Green WD10EZRX

i planning to buy a new pc with i3 4th gen i need to know which hard drive should i choose from them.
As i am already using 250gb each one of WD green and seagate. both are old. both i had to take in warranty couple of times too. and right now i am using WD as my main and partition for my main stuff downloading, deleting and so on. while seagate is just storage

and as the warranty are both same 2 years limited here.
which one is right.

i will have around 3-4 partition in them.

one for download, which will be used alot. movies n shows n stuff. torrent n streaming too.

other for my main c drive until i get a ssd (expensive at the moment) or just use my current one.

then they will be a storage partition for everything and lastly for office work.

there price range is almost same.

As WD black is expensive here.

  1. Seagate any time of the day. WD and their related brads are at the lowest tier of quality, specially their green/blue line. Always had problems with WD. Stopped buying them even on discount. Hitachi or Seagate for me.

    I dislike "Green" hard drives. They are slower, takes longer to "ramp up" and only use slightly less power than a "regular" HDD.

    If those are your only choices I would go for the Seagate.
