All manufacturers can put out a turd now and then. Both Western Digital and Seagate are good manufacturers and Id use either of them but Ive just always had better luck with WD. I just recently retired a rig that was running an 80GB WD drive from 2001 and it was still running just fine. Thats all Ive used and Ive yet to have a problem so I stick with them. So its more of a brand preference than actual empirical data.
If you feel more comfortable with Seagate then by all means go that way. Im sure it will be just fine.
