Which Hard Drive is better?

Hey, i am just wondering which HD is better, i will be using the new hard drive for Dxtory recordings, and video storage. I am looking for reliability for the price im paying, performance, storage, and write speed.

Seagate: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148834


WD: http://www.computervalley.ca/wd1002faex/0718037762340/western-digital-caviar-black-wd1002faex-1-tb-35-internal-hard-drive-sata/600-7200-rpm-64-mb-buffer-hot-swappable

Thanks!

    Your first link, to amazon.ca, links to a Western Digital drive instead of a Seagate drive.

  7. Seagate translates to "enjoy your drive failure", so definitely go WD.

    My Seagate is still kicking after 2 years. HDD failures are hit and miss between every company.
  9. I have ran many many WD drives and have NEVER had a fail.

    I would ONLY go with WD.

    But that's just my $0.02 ;)

    Well i have 3 Seagates and they have never failed on me. But what would you recommend for performance, and write speed?
  11. for a single drive I would choose WD; however, if you are planning to do a RAID, use the Seagate since the WD does not support TLER
