HDD- WD Caviar Black 500gb Or TOSHIBA DT01ACA200 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache

I am in need of a larger hard drive than my current 150gb one. The link to the Toshiba is here:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822149407&nm_mc=EMC-IGNEFL072313&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL072313-_-EMC-072313-Index-_-InternalHardDrives-_-22149407-L0B
Do not worry about the size of the drive or the price (i have a deal for the 2TB). I am only using my computer for gaming. Which one will be faster and more reliable? Thank you.

    faster= the toshiba. it uses 1tb platters. the wd black uses a 750gb platter 180mb/s vs 150mb/s

    more reliable is debateable. WD offers a 5yr warranty and the toshiba has a 2 yr.

    also, please don't bump posts. its against the rules. I'm glad I saw this before it got locked out because of the bumping. LoL
