or

HITACHI Deskstar 7K1000.C HDS721010CLA332 (0F10383) 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

The WD is rated much higher, but the Hitachi has the storage... Will I really notice a speed difference between the two drives?

    You will not observe any difference with either drive. The only differences show up in benchmarks and the differences are SMALL. Buy the one for the least money.
