It completely depends on the make, model and generation of the drives. Be more specific.

Still need more info. 5400 rpm? 7200 rpm?

In general, newer larger capacity hard drives will be a little quicker because they most likely have more dense platters. If the WD replacement drive is a 7200 Scorpio black, it should be noticeably faster than the older 5400 rpm Hitachi.
