    I don't care for hitachi much, haven't had good luck with them but as long as the drives don't have a sudden motion sensor built in, you should be good to go (not always the same thing as "shock protection" all drives have that).

    As we say here in the "States", your mileage may vary...

    either one of those drives should work for you. The Samsung supports NCQ (native command Queueing) which helps the seek times (1ms faster than the hitachi, not much faster!)
