My System Specs

Default WD 640GB vs Samsung 640GB?

Which one would you choose?

I don't really care too much about speed as it's just going to be used as storage. All I really care about its reliability and preferably silence. I suppose Seagate is another option too but they seem to be the most expensive.

I have a feeling my WD 500GB drive is on it's last legs (making some weird noises like there's fluid leaking inside it or something. I thought my liquid cooling was leaking but it's not), so might as well try and be semi-proactive and replace it before it totally dies.

Oh and the drive needs to be able to take some abuse cause I do a bunch of installs via VMWare to it if that matters.
