Default Which hard drive would you chose

I know I've posted this a couple times but it seems that I overlooked this Samsung Drive. People other forums recommend it. What do you guys think of these 3? Which would you chose based on overall performance and quietness:

Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD3200AAKS 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148140

SAMSUNG SpinPoint T Series HD321KJ 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive

I have hard drives from Western Digital, Seagate, and Maxtor. All work fine, except my Maxtor buzzes, which scares me because it's the newest drive in there.

Your links don't work, but Seagate has 32MB cache over Western Digital's offers.

The western digital AAKS drive. I have 4 of these, and 3 of the seagates (I have both 320 and 500 models).

The AAKS are slightly faster, but overall i'd look at a Seagate 7200.11 series drive as they are even faster than the AAKS.

I would go with the seagate personally. At work we've had a bunch of bad shipments of WD's and my faith is shaken a bit.
