  1. Best answer
    Green=energy saving slower drive
    Red=NAS drive
    Purple=Surveillance Drive.

    Black or blue would be good to go, Green for mass storage.
  2. Greens are for storing files like photos etc.

    Blues are a good all around HDD (for files and games)

    Blacks are optimal for gaming and they offer reliability by lasting about 5 years.
  3. get blue, a good middle-of-the-road hdd. black is faster, but they say its hot and can be noisy.

    i use SSD, then blue.
