I use Samsung SV1604V 1600GB | 5400 rpm, 
available at reichelt.de at a very interessting price.
(Many stupid resellers had stoppped selling 5400rpm disk
because of the majority of their stupid customers are only asking
for "big numbers".)

Samsung claims that SP1604N has lower power requirement than
the SV1604V and has same extremly low noise (you have to
place your ear on the drive to hear it rotating! (at least me have to ;-)))

Have not yet seen a broken Samsung.
My oldest seems to become louder as time goes by, but not problem 
according to "smart". Maybe it was almays so "laod" ?
