What's a good 1TB hard drive around the ~$50 - ~$75 range?

I was thinking of just getting a WD Caviar Blue, but then I hear from so many people that the Blue HDs have ridiculously high fail rates. And then I hear the same thing about Seagate, that their hard drives have high fail rates and so on and so forth. Since there's only two HD manufacturers left it's one of those "pick your poison" kind of deals. But which one is better?

    Heh, that's the drive I wound up purchasing since Micro Center had it for $55. Can't beat that.

    $55 well spent so far, Windows recognized it immediately and formatted it without any problems whatsoever. I'm copying all my data backed up from my external HD onto it.
