Prices for notebook hard disks

I shouldn't be surprised, but the capacity of notebook hard disks has increased a lot since I last looked, and prices look good, too:

Samsung:
- 250Gb - $175
- 320Gb - $245

Seagate:
- 200Gb - $195 (7200rpm)

WD:
- 250Gb - $149
- 320Gb - $225

This means I can make my next backup disk larger than the source disk, which in turn means that I won't have to buy two disks down the track when I eventually run out of room on the MacBook Pro.

Now just to figure out if one is better than the other. I don't have model numbers to go looking for reviews. Anyone have comments on Samsung vs. WD?
