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=N82E1682...


WD: http://www.computervalley.ca/wd1002faex/0718037762340/w...

Thanks!

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

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.

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 ;)

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
