I've had multiple WD drives fail on me... Seagate never failed me.
I guess nobody has a proper sample size Someone should make a database. Until then prolly go with the cheapest one with a warrenty.
My main priority for home pc use is noise level. If you have a somewhat decent cpu fan and power supply, the hard drives become the main source of noise pollution.
I don't know what an RMA or a pita is, but I like to make sure that I can return broken hardware to the store I bought it from and have them deal with it. Even amazon handles that for you if you insist... at least in EU. Just check the return policies.
