Which would you get?

Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200rpm

Samsung Spinpoint HD103SJ 1TB 7200rpm
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The Samsung is 20 bucks cheaper, and also has a discount code right now for another $10.

I'm using a 120gb SSD as my boot drive and planning using a 1TB HDD for storage.

Which would you go for? Is the WD Caviar that much better?

Thanks in advance!

Go with the WD Caviar Black 1 TB drive. The Caviar Black is WD's flagship line, and WD has a great reputation.

Are you joking? Go with the WD Caviar Black 1 TB drive. The Caviar Black is WD's flagship line, and WD has a great reputation.

WD, if you ask me. Cheaper, reliable, and you already are working w/ a ssd so I doubt performance is as important as reliability.
