Second [SmartAceW0LF] on OEM. Of the two laptop drives presented it seems like western digital had 20% fewer negative comments pertaining to DOA or DW2W (Dead Within 2 Weeks). They do have a three year warranty versus seagate's two year, but if the drive doesn't die within six months, both units seem reliable.

Thus to have an edge with QA upfront I would go with Western Digital (for the two drives presented) from a third party vendor with specific warranty lengths.
