Any hard drive can die unexpectedly. That's the nature of hard drives. Follow good backup procedures and you will minimise the damage done in the event of a hard drive failure.

Don't worry too much about Brand A or Brand B. Either the WD or Seagates will be fine. Just go with whichever one is best value at the time of purchasing.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, I have literally never had a drive die. If pressed I tend to drift towards Seagate just because I know a few people that work there so I can whine if something goes wrong :D. HDDs are currently pretty close to parity, but you can get one with a nice warranty and if you're really worried you can grab a Seagate Ironwolf Pro, where they will do free data recovery if the drive fails within 2 years.

also had bad experience with seagate & WD, but interestingly, had a HGST (only 1 from 2012 laptop ) still serves me good in ps3.

but looking at price trend, I will wait for ssd to cut by half before getting any more storage
