The Caviar SE is older than the Caviar Blue. The Caviar SE has only a SATA I interface, the Caviar Blue is available in SATA II and SATA III.

you're welcome. The Caviar Blue sits nicely between performance and power/cost efficiency and thus will do nicely for most application drives. If you're looking for a system drive, I would recommend the performance oriented Caviar Black.
