Default Hitachi or Western Digital Internal HDD?

Hi,
Well, it might be a personal preference,reputation or quality issue, but I already have three Western hard drives, one external WD500GB, one WD500GB internal Sata, and one WD 74GB Raptor drive. I bought an Hitachi 1 TB Internal SATA /7200, on sale for $47.00 at FRY'S, in today's paper Fry's had a WESTERN DIGITAL 1TB internal SATA for m457.00.

Any suggestions on if I should keep the Hitachi, or go with the 10.00 additional Western Digital HDD?


I've heard western Digital bought Hitachi, bit separately, I'm sure they are still different,obviously. Thanks.

110% get the WD. It is the best all around HDD manufacturer.

Actually, Seagate bought out Hitachi.

Seagate bought Samsung's HDD division, WD bought out Hitachi.
