Sorry to hijack, but aren't these unbearably slower? I have an old 500GB an that is nothing nowadays so I was considering a 3TB Green WD.

found this on some tech forum: "The Black is optimized for performance at the expense of noise and power consumption, the blue is a general use drive, designed to be a good balance of performance, power consumption, and noise, and the green is designed to use as little power and make as little noise as possible at the expense of performance."
Hope that helps, oh also might want to check what SATA speeds your motherboard is capable of, no point paying for speed you can't use
bottom line i think i'll go for the 1TB black because the 2TB black costs almost as twice..
thanks for your response.
yeah the black is boiling hot but to tell you the truth i don't here him at all, he's much silent then my old hdd..
