HDD pick help

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi there

I was going to buy this HDD:


Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136742
$89.99 dls

But its out of stock, the problem is my sister is going to newyork tomorrow to shopping (shes from mexico), and she will be there only 1 week, in that time i dont think newegg will have a re-stock,
and she needs atleast to order 3 days before she leaves NY, if that is the case of no RE-stock, what HDD could i buy (i just want 1TB and really faster HDD).

My comp specifications: For a good compatibility.

i7 3770k
ASUS Maximus V formula
SSD samsung 830 128gb

should i get
Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache Internal Desktop Hard Drive Bulk/OEM - WD1002FAEX
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0036Q7MV0/?tag=pcpapi-20
$102.95

or this one
Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148840&nm_mc=EMC-EXPRESS100612C&cm_mmc=EMC-EXPRESS100612C-_-EMC-100612-Index-_-InternalHardDrives-_-22148840-L06A
$79.99

just got that offer, but if im sacrificing performance then i get the expensive one if its the same i get the cheaper

what do you guys think

Technically, the Seagate ST1 performs better than the WD FAEX. Higher aerial density and better caching technology. That said, it also has adaptive power management which can seriously be a pain in the rear. I use 2 of each of these drive families in my "Main Rig" below.

I personally recommend the blacks, as they win out in seek times generally, and they don't favor power over performance.

Also; WD > Seagate at customer service.

Western Digital is my personal preference.
If the purpose is for backup then it will be the green version.
