  1. Based on my personal experience, WD drives have been more reliable than Seagate ones, but then I have bought a lot of hard drives in my 30 years of computing. That's not to say WD drives never fail, they all fail eventually. And even WD produces a bad batch from time to time which fail within weeks.

    But I've definitely had fewer bad drives from WD than from Seagate, that's a fact.
  2. My first WD drive failed after 6 years (which was about a week ago). I have 2 Maxter drives (one external one internal) and they both still work. I recently obtained a few Seagates from 05' but they have so many ECC errors coming up from using SpinRite i wouldn't trust them with important information. I still trust WD over Seagate but it's up to you.

    Hard drive technology is 30 years old and these products have essentially become a commodity...There are people that will argue for either saying that one will have a higher failure rate than the other...but most likely they have the same failure rate...

    If you have the money, go for a solid state drive
