I feel like it's fast but I do believe the ones I'm gonna mention are faster and are 1tb versions both with 32mb cache, 1 being SATA II(spinpoint f3) and the other one SATA III(seagate).

I personally would grab the seagate's only because I've had decent experiences with seagates before and have never owned a samsung. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
