check out this thread comparing the black to the F3
my caviar blacks are silent. ANd i have owned 3 f3's in the past. even though everyone is recommending f3's, id still have to recommend the caviar black. comes with a 5 year warranty, and it is QUIETER than the f3 by ALOT. Its the better all around drive. The f3 has slightly faster sequential read and write. But the caviar black is less likely to arrive doa, or crap out on you in the future.

also, you could read the newegg reveiws on both drives. Not saying there accurate reviews, but might help.

Caviar black line is very fast, maybe at the same level as samsung f3. I have one and it's flying through things without a sweat.

yea the differences in read/write speed are negligable. and since they are negligable, why not go with the drive with 5 year warranty? I will be honest, I have never had a western digital drive die on me. Samsung, I have had 3 die on me. Also, I have owned more WD drives than Samsung drives. You do the math.

When this question was asked the Samsung F3's 1TB were 54.99 shipped at New Egg, looks like they are back up to 69.99.
