Not that I know of.
One of the reasons I stay away from "Green" and "Blue" drive. I've also not bought any that were Yellow Poka dot LOL.
For the past several years IMy prefernce was WD Blak drive, But last 3 have been the Samsung F3
For what its worth department, the only differece between a Sata III HDD on SATA III port and a SATA II drive on a SATA II port is in burst speed - In other words almost NO diff. For marketing purpose - WHO would want to say I'm still using Yesterdays standard even Though NO better for HDDs - SSDs different store as Seq read/writes are much better..
Thanks, yes I know that SATA3 is basically for SSDs and that HDDs are maxed out at SATA2 speeds. But the drive was on sale, so I bought it anyway. Maybe now I know why it was on sale...
I stay away from green drives too, and would never use one for a boot drive. But I didn't know the blue drives had issues too?
