Blacks vs Blues
Not the same stroke, but close enough.
Blacks have the better access times.

Depends where you look. There is different data posted all over the internet and you can only take the reports with a grain of salt. Everyone has different experiences and rarely anyone replaces their hard drives every 3 years, they expect it to last all of eternity so you really can't believe what they say.

Their bad luck in hard drive failures does not mean that brand is bad. It depends on your luck, how often the drive is utilized, temperature, etc.

I personally use Hitachi and have a few WD's. I had two Hitachi 500GB drives fail on me a year ago, but that doesn't mean Hitachi is bad.

I look at the date it was manufactured, MAR 2006 and OCT 2005. A year ago was 2010, they lasted 4 and 5 years respectively, way over the 3 year warranty period. Does that mean Hitachi is bad? No, because their time was up anyway.

A lot of people here will give you half assed answers, it's up to you to sort out all the BS. Google's Disk Failure Experience report.

As for the fastest drive available right now, it's Hitachi's new SATA-3 (6Gbps) drives (5700rpm-5940rpm and 7200rpm):
