Im just about to order one of these for my first pc build and can't decide, what one do you think is more reliable?

Best solution

I have used both the Barracuda and the Blue in many builds over the years. I've never had an issue with either one. Go with which ever has the best deal. I'd very slightly favor the WD. But not by all that much.

I have the Barracuda 7200.14 1TB now for a few days, and it's faster then wd black. I got 207.5mb/s transfer on that seagate. Not sure how long it will last me, because i hear bad things about it.
