The Seagate is similar speed but much quieter and uses less power. You could pricematch it to Newegg: - Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives
QUIETER!?!?!? I have the exact same drive you mentioned and it gives me headaches. I also have the WD green 500gb one and it is fine.
