Is one faster/slower or is one more reliable/unreliable. But is it worth getting a Black as I want a system that will last me along time and try and reduce the chances of HDD failures...
Green = power savings and low speed good for data storage
Blue = General all around drive
Black = Performance
Red = Enterprise

Just go for either blue or black depending on your wallet or go for a Seagate.
