I have the western blu good drive so far own 3 and I have several seagates good drives as well as for the black I dont have but saw some iffy reviews on some models on newegg but it happens to all the drive makers. Take it with a grain of salt.

Just my 2 cents!

I think they changed the name now the barracuda is now a older model and the name does not make it any faster in no means ... check out the eggs site

maybe this will help..
If you want fast and speed I suggest a SSD drive but for that price you give up gigabytes for speed and not space.

Get a WD Black 1TB. I like WD a lot more than Seagate although I would trust either one.

Seagate barracuda has better read speeds than the Caviar Blue. The write speeds are about equal on Barracuda and WD Blue

Write Speeds : WD Caviar Black > WD Caviar Blue ~ Seagate Barracuda (almost equal)

Read Speeds : WD Caviar Black > Seagate Barracuda > WD Caviar Blue

So, I would personally prefer the Seagate Barracuda more.
