i'd go with WD since they seem to have better reputation

the only bad experience i had with WD was when i set the WD as master and my maxtor as slave and then i couldn't get the drives to spin after booting up that one time (burned nearly $150 worth of hard drive, not to mention my unreplaceble data and files, i'll have to take it to the comp shop tomorrow to see if it's really dead)

I have a 40GB Seagate and its quiet as and my 80GB Maxtor is loud. I havent had any problems with any HDD's...yet, so i probly cant say which is better.
I have had a few Maxtors in the last 8 years and no problems.

ive had two WD hd's in the past and have had nothing but trouble with them. now i only use seagate, but i guess its more a personal preference. its kinda like comparing ford with chevrolet.
