I also have a Samsung Spinpoint 1tb and it is very fast. Not quiet as fast as the Velociraptor but faster than the old raptors.

Agreed, the 640Gb AALS and the older, but just as good 640Gb AAKS are some of the very best in drive performance.

I would personally go with the seagates, they are rock solid and if they do happen to fail the warranty as well as the RMA process is very painless.

I'm not sure if there's really a difference between the Caviar Black and the Samsung Spinpoint F1 that justifies a $30 difference, but I've built 3 rigs for friends recently and they are all equipped with SpinPoints and run blazing fast.

32MB cache doesn't do much.
