I'd get the 2TB Seagate without hesitation (I already have that same model on my Amazon wish list) but I guess I'd be tempted to pay a little more for the green one if it was just for storage. Less power drain, less noise, lower temps.

In the weirdness dept. I have some kind of psychological problem with the "Caviar" brand name, I just can't have anything called "Caviar" inside my PC.

About reliability it looks like the only sensible thing that can be said is that some drives fail right away, some drives take a long time to fail and that effective cooling helps.

As far as I know at the moment there is no consistently "bad" drive on the market, like a few years back when there were issues with a certain generation of Seagate drives, or even further back with the Maxtor G-/P-list fiasco (google "Maxtor Athena" for some horror stories, I have one here, a perfectly fine drive full of stuff that I can't access..because of a stupid engineering decision...grrr).
