I am looking to get a new HDD for my media (gameplay recordings, videos, pictures, music, movies, etc). I am not sure whether I wan't a Western Digital Blue or Green. I understand the blue is a mix between the black and green. I understand the green is a low power/ power saving drive. I will be having videos recorded to this drive if that makes any difference. I would like to hear what you guys thing I should get.

If you're writing video to it, the Blue.

For actual static files...just playing music or storing images, the Green.

Blue, better balance of performance v power, especially for video/audio work.

Is the blue fairly quiet?

It is no more noisy than the Green.
