I hate these huge hard drives discussions as far as it goes all drives can and will fail at one point or another so its just luck of the draw. And as far as speed goes we all know that this is the order:

1. Raptor 10k
2. Hitachi 7K1000 Perp. (New one)
3. Seagate 7200.10 Perp. (New one)
4. WD Cavier RE2
5. Anything else 7200 rpm.

Pick your drive on budget imo. They all go up in price the higher you go in that list.

The only thing that I can see wearing down faster by leaving the computer on is hard drives. However, they do not wear down fast anyways. Most hard drives are warrantied for 5 years.

For the overall computer, it's better to leave it on. The surge of electricity through all the components is harder on them than constant usage.

I just got my first Samsung drive for my laptop just now. I'll test it out in ~1 day and report back. I'm sure it's a nice drive, especially compared to my old laptop drive.

About Western Digitals: They're good cheap drives, but run rather warm!

I'm a huge fan of Seagate's 5 year warranty, that's why I went with 17 of their 750GB drives for my HTPC.
