I much prefer WD disks for 2 reasons.... 1. they seem to fail less often than Seagate disks and 2. WD's warranty support has been much better for me.

WD has a local warranty depot for me so I can drop off failed drives. With Seagate, I have to mail in drives (at my cost). The other aspect is the warranty of replacement drives. Last time I checked a replacement Seagate drive has a very limited warranty (even if the failed drive still had years left on its warranty) whereas WD's replacement drive warranty is closer to the warranty the original failed drive had.
