It will be a good deal. WD is - in general - better suited for desktops. Hitachi is better in RAID systems. What WD should do is to drop some products from it desktop line. All Green and Blue disks are relatively useless. The only WD HDDs I buy are Blacks. Not a single faulty Black so far. Same goes for every Hitachi drive I ever owned (including many during UW/LVD -> SCSI times). Burn Seagate. Most worthless SATA disks I ever used.
