5 yr (Black) vs 2 yr (Blue) warranty. You'll not see any real difference in gaming operations.

The Amazon price for that Blue you have linked is much too high.
Here's a better price for that:
£49.49

Western Digital Black VS Western Digital Blue, go with the WD black hands down. I have seen way too many failing WD blues. Blacks seems to be solid.

Green: Slowest, quietest, lowest power

Blue: Standard drive

Black: Performance tuned, faster, potentially noisier and more power hungry
