Wait, is that clicking? What do you mean boot disk not ready?

NERDS! It's that time of year again. I need some replacement HD's. Let's say Western Digital versus Seagate. Let's rap anecdotal and tell each other which brand is awesome and which we should never use again.

We did this 3 years ago and I know Seagate had a shit ton of firmware issues in 2008 while Western Digital just cranked up their Caviars to 5 year warranties. So what say ye', on this Friday? 1/1.5 TB SATA's... any opinions?
Full disclosure; I was a Maxtor boy, then I was a Seagate man, and while I have a few WD externals, I'd normally buy Seagate... but the WD 5 year warranty caught my eye...
