I've had some really good luck with Hitachi drives over the years. Much better than with WD or Seagate. I just hope the purchase from WD doesn't change that record going forward. Even though it's become less relevant with SSDs now.

I had many issues with Seagate hard drives in the past. With clicks, ticks, and premature deaths. Not so much with ones from Western Digital, Hitachi, or Toshiba though. They have been pretty reliable.
