I get WD greens. They're just fine.

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."

If you are after storage+gaming then go for the WD Blacks, reliable, reasonable pricing and good performance, you want speed? then go for a 1TB WD Raptor, spins at 10,000 rpm, i have a 300GB version that handles my steam folder (most of it). WD make some really good drives but Seagate are also a really great brand, all down to personal preference, i'd take the WD either Black or Raptor (depending on budget), I also own a 1.5TB Seagate drive, as well as 3 OCZ SSD's and have owned WD Green's and Black's....(Please don't get the WD Green, painfully slow)

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

well i know all about the raptor but for my system i prefer my ssd 128GB of gskill, it's really fast and silent, about the sata i'm still on 2 but i'll buy a sata3 because there's no point to buy another hdd when i'll upgrade the motherboard and sell the "old" one.
bottom line i think i'll go for the 1TB black because the 2TB black costs almost as twice..
thanks for your response.

SSD's are the king of speed obviously, but like i said all down to want you want to use it for plus price, the 1TB black is perfect for what you want at a great price, i'm planning to ditch my 1.5TB seagate in favor of a 2-3 TB WD sometime soon as well......keep filling them up too quickly, hopefully with a full SATA 3 drive and motherboard i can run games off it without the massive load times.

well bought the WD 1tb black today and i can say that it's definitely worth every "shekel", a true great product from WD very fast and not that loud as i thought

I can attest to the WD Green, great to use on those external docks for additional storage because they stay relatively cool. Not suitable for system though.
