Solved WD Black vs WD Blue Tags: Western Digital SATA Components Last response: April 1, 2013 8:52 PM in Components Share Xlolxz April 1, 2013 8:36:23 PM Western Digital 1TB WD Blue, SATA III, 7200RPM, 64MB VS Western Digital 500GB WD Black, SATA III, 7200RPM, 64MB Why is the blue cheaper when the specs seem to be better? More about : black blue Best solution DarkSable April 1, 2013 8:49:22 PM Share Because the Black comes with a 5 year warranty. The blue will be slightly faster and is larger, they're equally reliable, but the black has the warranty going for it. I'd personally go for the blue.
