Id go with the USB 3.0. More than likely the warranty will never be used and even if you do use it you will probably care more about your lost data than the actual physical hardware being replaced.

I too would go with USB 3.0.

I wouldn't recommend buying "Seagate" hard drives.

Get something like this:

or this:

Then you are free with the actual HD you choose, and also flexible in a warranty case.

I have had nothing but issues with Seagate.

Issues with overheating, DOA, and Seagate just dropped the warranty from 5 years to 3 years on certain drives.
