    The last three numbers are your indicators of actual program performance, and the WD is significantly better.

    We won't even get into the difference in failure rates between these two drives.....

    Seagate drives have significantly higher failure rates than WD drives.

    This is published information that is certainly backed up by verified customer reviews on major retail sites.

    these segate drives are from CCTV/Camera/Blue ray eg
    Are quiet, cold and good in streeming so should be fine (nice for torrents )
    I need only performance so segate is slower. Is this worth to do system reinstal ? (after one week) Difference is big? When I look on SSD rates...I feel oddly haha

    Honesty you will not notice much difference on day to day usage. Unless you can detect milliseconds during load times.
    I would not store anything important on the Seagate.
