i would go with the Seagate gate one because its cheaper. both of them offer pritty much the same thing both of them are reliable companys so unless u like the way the Western Digital looks and are willing to pay $10 for that. If ur computer has an esata port and u can find a external with an esata connection for about the same price i would suggest that because u tend to get faster speed on then

I'm not worried about the price or the design. As long as it is efficient and has good durability.

I would almost second amir. Both I would think are pretty similar. Just look at drive speed and price and see what your happiest with.

I've got a WD drive and cant say a bad thing. I did remember reading something before about Seagate drive failures (link below). Seems to be down one single drive type though, but havnt heard anything like that before about WD so personally I'd be happy to stick with WD drives.

I would suggest WD Black Edition 1 TB as long as you don't want to put it in raid (cannot raid these hard drives), fast as hell and scores high on benchmarks I have 1 TB X2 and running Windows 7 x64 6.2 Windows Score and fast performance! Also it is very cheap @ $80-$100

Review from "The Tech Report"

http://techreport.com/articles.x/15363

The Caviar Black is in a tricky position, then. Sure, it's the fastest 7,200-RPM drive on the market, but it's also a little pricey and probably too loud for many enthusiasts' desktop systems. The Black is better suited to workstation and server environments that will capitalize on the drive's quick access times and strong performance with workloads that include more randomized I/O request patterns. It's no surprise, then, that WD recently announced a line of enterprise-class RE3 based on the Caviar Black
