I’m trying to compare a Western Digital Caviar black 1TB sata 3 HDD at 7200 rpm and 64 mb cache with a Toshiba HDD with the same Specifications

these are the items on newegg

the Toshiba is better priced but the has some suspect reviews about not working with win 7 and 8 and dying quickly. can anyone give an opinion in comparison of these 2 drives?

Purchase the Western Digital Black Edition! We Use this at the shop! We Find that Toshiba & Seagates fail Much more frequently.
Not to say Western Digital Doesnt Fail, How ever Western Digital BLUE & Green Edition are pretty Crappy quality, but the black Hard drive that you are looking at is excellent quality for a consumer end hard drives. I would recommend you go with that.

I had a Western Digital Black 1TB just die on me, just 8 months old. It was one of those purchases where I needed it right away to get a computer back online and the local store only carried Seagate, WD, Toshiba, but had stopped carrying Hitachi. Hitachi's will do circles around any WD or Seagate drive, expecially if you get the Enterprise class which has a 5 yr warranty. I just finished purchasing some on another site factory sealed 1TB for $90.00.
