There seem to be many stories of Seagates having short life expectancy, although "the plural of anecdote is not data".
I don't run many drives in service, so I don't know which is more reliable: but both modern Seagate and Hitachi drives are quiet and cool.
I did have an unusual experience with one Hitachi 7200rpm disk:

It still does the same thing and has not failed so far. I definitely wouldn't want to use this in a RAID array, but my hunch is that it is a drive configuration problem.
