WD Green 2TB vs Seagate Barracuda XT 2TB vs WD Black 1TB

December 6, 2012 5:53:35 AM

Hi, I'm trying to decide on a hard drive. I won't be using it as a boot drive (that'll be on an SSD), only data storage, so I shouldn't need anything too high end. I'm trying to decide between the the WD Green 2TB and the 2TB Seagate Barracuda XT. Also an option is the WD Black 1TB, which is the same price as the Green TB and the Seagate, and, whilst I'm sure it's better, I'm not sure it'd be better for simple use as data storage, as I've read, due to the higher power consumption that comes as a result of the faster speeds.

Anyway, does anyone have any reccomendation as to which hard drive to get?
