    does anyone have any idea which one is better for these 1TB hdd? Seagate or WD? what are their pros and cons for these brands?
  • jimihieu
    not sure about their performances but I can see Seagate has an advantage of 5 yrs warranty compare to 3 yrs for WDD

    Any codes for HarrisTech? I thought you could get free delivery or 10% cashback via PayPal or something
  • bigal
    10% cashback via payapl is over, dont remember there was ever an free delivery option

    I think for the money Jimihieu the Seagate is a really good buy. Quality wise when you read around there is not a lot of difference between the two. I think WD have a bigger name but not necessarily are a better hdd. There is talk of bigger and better (both size and design) so this is the likely reason for the drop in price I think you are probably better to collect - they have a few centres

    Thanks for posting this! Just bought it. A great buy :D

    I'd personally say its pretty much like for like on a practical level jimihieu. Both are long established and pretty reliable brands. I dont know comparitive transfer speeds or cache capabilities, but I'd argue that as a back up drive the major limitation will be the type of connection they hold - USB, Firewire, Network rather than the nuts and bolts spec (both are USB btw). Both will be 7200 spin. Google did some really interesting analysis of their millions of off the shelf drives that they run on their infrastructure a while back and it showed that the life of a drive was largely a product of the number of read /writes to it over time. Brand, size, config etc made little working difference. I also reckon that the rule of thumb that you'd expect about a 3 year working safe life out of a drive still applies. After that point the probability of failure gets a lot higher.

    well, having bought now TWO western digital 1 TB mybooks and having them fail on me - intermittantly, I can conclude that they're, crap

    I've had both Seagate and WD fall over - I thought 320GB was a loss but imagine losing 1TB of valued Data!!? Putting a quality drive into a cheap external housing/bridge can be the cause of many problems

    How long did it take for them to die Bleugh ?? WD are usually pretty good. Over the years I've had probably about 5 drives die on me. I've lost various bits of data out of it but the biggest lesson for me is to duplicate anything thats important.

    A HT staff contacted me after I made my order. I paid it through internet transfer, and the next day another staff told me it's sold out and discontinued. This is in VIC.
  • admin EDITOR
    Am now getting a part not found message off the HT site when clicking through so I'll expire the deal.
