I go WD, too - I still remember (some years ago) Seagate's defective 1TB drives which they actually denied for roughly a year and then finally admitted there was a problem.

Still - I've notice a remarkably high dissatisfaction rate (DOA, Crash in a few weeks) for all drive manufacturers once they get above 1TB. Hence - two WD blue's in my primary desktop, both 1TB. I look at the customer comments and drive may be rate 4/5 - but that's made up of a lot of 5's and 1's . . . not a good thing. I realize the comments are usually weighted towards people with problems.   Nonetheless, I don't want a HDD with even a 1% failure rate, let alone 10%-20%;   And, as I mentioned above in this same paragraph:   it goes across all manufacturers.

My take: quality control is not as cheap, at this point, as replacing defective drives. So - they take the better money-making route and let the end user do quality control for them.
