Most of my recent hard drives have been Western Digital, and I haven't had any problems with them so far (touch wood). But it's been about 3 years since I bought storage, so I'm unsure what to go for.
Pricespy ranks the Seagate ST2000DM001 2TB drive as number 1, and is priced nicely at about $150. But the 2TB WD Caviar Black is nearly a $100 more expensive. What's with the price gap? Is the Seagate rubbish compared to the WD, or is WD now hugely overpriced. Which of the two would you recommend?
