  1. They are probably the same in performance it's just that one is green which means it is eco friendly.
  2. "Green" edition is 5900 RPM drive compared to 7200 RPM for other one you have mention.
    Performance wise there would be slight difference,

    for storage i have the green once= less heat and noise i have 5 in bays
  3. green ones use less power because they are slower. they spin at a lower 5200 rpm speed, compared to 7200 rpm standard speed.

    theere would be a noticable speed difference between the two.
    get the regular one, NOT the green one.
  4. how about the regular one with os and the green as storage?
  5. Get 60-64 gig SSD for windows, and 2TB green drive for storage
    once u go SSD there no turning back to slow poke old school drive l=

    is there a lot of price difference between the two? if no, then get the regular ones.
    you wont like the performance of a "green disk".
    and since its slow, it takes more time to complete a given task, it is active for longer time and hence takes overall more power.
    so if you are thinking to contribute to the green earth, this wont be a good step.
