For those two drives, I suspect that you are nitpicking needlessly. I might favor Hitachi or HGST over Seagate, but I would be more interested in price comparisons. As for the size of the caches, those are among the largest caches to be found in drives of that class, and I don't think it matters as much -- again -- in comparison to the price differential.

I've used a half-dozen Seagate NAS drives; I have a couple Seagate Barracuda [not Pro model]; I'm running four 3TB Hitachi drives at the moment.

Remember that you are buying disks in the upper size-range, and might expect some greater chance of failure for being on the cutting edge of that technology. Also, I personally wouldn't want to put "all my eggs in one basket" with drives of such a size as you contemplate.
