They are VERY close to being the same.

According to Newegg, a WD Caviar 250 gig SATA hard drive at 7200 RPM has a seek time of 8.9 ms, write time of 10.9 ms, and latency of 4.2 ms, and is 57.99 USD OEM. A Segate Barracuda 250 gig SATA hard drive at 7200.10 RPM has a seek time of 8.5 ms, write time of 10 ms, and latency at 4.16 ms, and costs 57.99 USD OEM.

They are very similar in specifications, but the Segate is a little better. At the same price, then I would personally choose the Segate because I value every second that it takes.

I've had much better luck with the Seagate Barracudas personally, I've had 2 WD Caviars die on me. Original post updated, deal pending to Viprk24.

I'd also be willing to sell my Logitech Z-5500 speakers, but I would imagine shipping would cost a lot, so I don't know if anyone would be interested.

You can't look at just the specs.

I have three Seagate 7200.10 drives and four western digital AAKS (Caviar) drives. The Western digitals are all slightly faster.
