Ive heard not so good things about the Seagate, so should i be safe and get a 1 TB WD caviar blue or is the Seagate good enough.

Best solution

I'd prefer the 2TB barracuda, unusual issues only happen if you push the device to work beyond its acceptable usage and normal working conditions.

I have 3 of the 2TB Seagate Barracudas working in a 24/7 server for the last 15 months and have been nothing but impressed by their speed, low noise, and cool performance.

If this were a WD Black vs. Seagate Barracuda I could maybe see some consideration to this question, but I wouldn't even consider a similar capacity Blue.
