Secondary HDD opinion

I will use this secondary HDD mainly for storing/editing home videos. Which would be the better option? It appears the Seagate Momentus XT (750GB) is faster, but the 1.5T Caviar Black has a huge capacity. Would I really notice the speed advantage of the Seagate? Is there anything else I should consider for what I will be using it for? Which would be the better option?

The Momentus XT is fast as a boot drive due to the 4GB cache. Go for the Caviar Black and have plenty of RAM for video editing and storage.

As a secondary storage drive I would opt for capacity over speed. The drive speed will only affect load/save times.
