Which Seagate hard drive is better?

I was just wondering which hard drive would be better to buy. They all seem fairly similar in specs, so I'm wondering what the differences would be (and especially, as in one of the cases, why one of them is $159 when something else with the same capacity, RPM, and such is cheaper, like around $89.)

Here are the hard drives in question:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (the $159 one)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also, if anyone can see a reason why this 750GB one is more expensive than (and got lower ratings than) other ones that seem better that I listed: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If anyone has a hard drive they would suggest more than these, please let me know. I'd hope for 1TB or more.

I'd just go with the cheapest one that has the best ratings. Seagate is a pretty good brand.

I see. They all looked similar (and it doesn't seem easy to find anything that would tell any difference between them), so it surprised me that you could pay anywhere from like $89-$159 for what appears to be basically the same kind of drive.
