Hard Drive replacement for ST31000528AS in Inspiron 580

I need to replace a defective 1 TB hard drive ST31000528AS in an Inspiron 580 Desktop

There are 3 choices shown on the Dell parts website but no indication of any differences between them. Does anyone know what are the difference if any before I place an order and are they Seagate manufactured or otherwise. 

Also is there a Western Digital alternative that will suit this machine.I have attempted to contact Dell but I keep going around in circles. Any advice would be most appreciated

There is no reason to buy from Dell when it is cheaper to buy elsewhere.

Hi just like  it is cheaper buying elsewhere. Although I have not seen the replacement drives dell was showing you,  I would recommend that you buy this one new egg where it seems to be at the lowest price, and yes there are western digital alternatives, just about any 3.5" SATA HDD should work fine.

Thanks for your reply I have used Western Drives  In  the past and found them more reliable than Seagate and cheaper too.
