Baby, It's Cold Outside

Just enabled EHD on my account. Trying to decide between two drives:
- Western Digital Elements 500 GB (available from Newegg for $55 shipped)
- Iomega Prestige 1TB (available from Staples for $59 + tax, OOS online)
On price for capacity, the Iomega has the obvious edge. However, I'm simply not as familiar with Iomega, with regard to their hard drives. One edge for the WD is that it spins down its drive when not being accessed, something I have not verified yet for the Iomega.
I have both.
The Iomega is on my 211k as the MAIN drive. No problems so far. The Elements are awesome, though ( I have at least 5 of those). Your choice.
