Yep, as the title says, what's the best price for performance and storage 3.5" Internal Hard Drive?

Currently, I own a WD Caviar Black 1TB. However, I've been hearing things about Samsung Spinpoint and Seagate.
Are they better? I want to get preferably another 1TB or 1.5TB Hard drive to add to my computer.

Also, any good external hard drive to recommend? USB 2.0 and preferably 320GB and above.

I have a scanned price list here

I'm from Singapore, so prices are in SGD.

I'm thinking about getting this for my internal hard drive

Seagate 1.5TB 7200rpm/32m(3Y). -- 139

I'm not sure about the external hard drives though. Is there any notable difference between 2.5" and 3.5"?

the spinpoints are very good hdd (and relatively cheap as well). in terms of performance, i think all three drives you listed perform at about the same level so it comes down to price.

i'd go with the spinpoint
