In other words which matters most cache or rpm for daily use More about : select hard drive performance mayankleoboy1 September 28, 2011 2:20:38 PM caviar blue would be better as the green one has 5400 rpm spindle. so the blue one should be faster. that said, the speed increase wont be very noticeable. Onus a b G Storage September 28, 2011 2:24:34 PM The Blue will be faster. Their Black series is the fastest (although it is also a little noisier). It is comparable to the Samsung Spinpoint F3 and Seagate 7200.12. Most people seem to favor one of those last two for speed. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
