Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB(16MB) Vs. WD Caviar Black 500GB (32MB)

Hello all!
I recently got my hands on a good deal for both this drive:


and this drive:


Now, I understand Seagate has an incredible physical size reduction on this drive compared to their last generation with the 329GBits per inch squared. So comparatively, the western digital drive is bulkier and heavier.
The WD drive has a 32MB buffer and the Seagate a 16MB.
If you were to keep one and throw back the other, what would be your selection? What benefits and detailed specs am I looking to take into account here?

Anything you've got is appreciated, so thanks in advance!
