They are probably the same in performance it's just that one is green which means it is eco friendly.

"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

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.

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.
