Best price/quality TB sata hard drives on the market now?

You have to be careful with the 2GB Barracudas. The 667GB platter versions are much, much worse drives than the 1TB ones. The way to tell the difference is by the shape and depth of the indent on the top plate. If it's shallow you have a 667GB, if it's deeper and more rounded you have the 1TB version.

Do either of those 1TB drives that were posted earlier use 1TB platters?

It is just specific versions of the Seagate 2TB drive that use the 3 0.67 TB platters. If you are getting either of the hard drives I linked you are fine.
