Wd 20EZRX is the green drive, it runs in lower speed to save energy. If you use it for the storage driver than you are fine.

Its a 5400/5900 rpm drive.
If your looking for performance in a mechanical drive then you need to look at 7200 rpms and up.

I don't know which green 1TB you had. If you have the WD10EZRX then they are almost same. From WD website ( http://www.wdc.com/wdproducts/library/SpecSheet/ENG/287... ) you can see 1TB is 150MB/s and 2TB is 145MB/s. Maybe you have more programs on it too.


i had WD 1 Tb WD 10EARS model so it was less speed nearly 50MBPS speed but i was using it as secondary storage and 2 Tb also as secondary storage

data transfer speed is dictated by the platter density as well as the rotational velocity of the platters. A dense platter achieving 150mb/s at 5400 rpm could probably get 200mb/s at 7200. My opinion of the WD greens is that give amazing perfomance for what they are and what they cost. If you want better performance get a WD Black edition.
