Just yesterday I build 2 computers for different friends and I had the chance to try out the WD Black FAEX adn the .12 from Seagate, What I can say in comparison to the Samsung F3 1TB I got is that the WD is like a billion times more noisy when reading/writing I dont even have to look at the harddrive activity LED and I would know its reading/writing something. The SG .12 is just a tad bit silent by it runs hotter ( at least to the touch ) the Samsung is perfect, when reading/writing its not audible, it responds/loads noticeably faster and its not even warm to the touch and the Sammy is the cheapest among the bunch followed by SG the WD.

In my opinion, since i don't own any 1tb wd blacks. However, i do have a few of the sammy F3's and they have been nothing BUT goodness. The F3's are some of the quietest running storage drives i've ever owned.

The price/ preformance should be a no brainer. I haven't run them in raid0 but from what others have stated they run like champs.

The fact of the matter is both are quality drives from reliable manufacturers, you are good if you go either way. Just pick the lowest price and you will have a solid drive in the end.

Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB's ftw! I've had over 30 of them, not one went bad. They are also faster of the bunch, and slightly quieter. Really cheap, too. Usually you can find them for $52 - $55 at Superbiiiz with a promo code.

Black is faster, and awesome. It's also not really that loud.

Do not go with SeaGate past ~500Gb
I had 3 7200.12 DOA on me.
My 1TB Black drive is dead silent while read/writing. The transfer speed is a lot faster than the one 7200.12 1TB I had that worked (before it died from overheating), the F3 and WD Black are roughly the same, with the WD Black pulling ahead in some areas.
