Looking to buy one of these drives. If I forget about the price difference, if there is any, which drive should I go for?
I'm strictly looking to buy one of the above two and want to know which drive will give the best "overall" performance.

BTW, I will be replacing my Samsung HD103SJ based two drive RAID-0 setup with one of these drives.

All of my drives are Seagate, Never used any toshiba, so far never had any bad experiences with Seagate. I dunno about Toshiba though.

I agree with lyndonguitar, im definitly a seagate fan =) I work as a computer tech and from experience from work toshibas are pretty much always the drives that fail in all notebooks from staff.
Thats just my experience with them anyway =)
