Did you check out this post... WD SE16 640GB vs. Seagate 7200.11 640GB http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/storage/9825-wd-se16-640gb-vs-seagate-7200-11-640gb-somewhat-complete-analysis.html

Seems to me like it directly applies to you... no real reason to create a new thread even. But since you did, I have the WD 640 and it works great, no problems, but read the review so you can decide on your own. The guy who compared the two says to go with the WD over the Seagate too...
