    Is there any reason to favor one over the other? The only significant difference I can see is that Seagate offers a five year warranty vs. WD offering only a one year.....

    Aside from that, they appear to be well-nigh identical, save the enclosures.

    I'm being drawn to the Seagate for the longer warranty--any reason to think otherwise?

    TIA!

    I believe Seagate has a 5 year warranty...I currently have an external WD and an internal Seagate. Both work well.
