I have had one Maxtor 160GB failure (Maxtor is one of the Seagate brands), worked fine for about a year.

Also recent 7200.11 series of Seagate drives were all broken because of fauly firmware.

Western Digital drives always worked for me reliably, I currently also own Hitachi 7200 3.5" 160GB and this one also works ok.

I would stick away from desktop Seagate series, but mobile ones seem to be not affected by desktop series problems (like firmware).
