(.11 series If I'm not mistaken) But current generation is quite good actually.. (.12 series) Baracuda and Caviar Blue are not much different, both are good drives.. But WD comes with Acronise Backup Apps could be a good addition if u will use it a lot... for seagate they are cheap and available almost everywhere.... The thing is, u might wanna select the factory that made the HDD (China, Thailand, Malaysia, etc...) some region produce better disc than other region...
