It's rather unfair to keep away from Seagate just because of this one error ...
500GB and 1.5TB were also affected, whole 7200.11 series.

Newer Seagate 7200.12 seriees seems to be ok, but while having 500GB* platters (WD mostly 340GB) it has RAC (Random Access Time) at about 15-16ms while WD have it at about 12ms, that makes a big difference.

Bigger platters means less space needed for head moving = faster transfers/operations etc.

Linux is not UNIX! Face it! It is not an insult. It is fact: GNU is a recursive acronym for “GNU's Not UNIX”.
