Green drives are good for mass storage of important data and backups and spin at about 5200RPM - not the fastest but usually have a good life span.

the other two drives are pretty much identical and will not perform differently.
Both spin at roughly 7200RPM which is pretty standard for a HDD.

A higher RPM usually means a better transfer rate.

The WD-AV-GP drive is an A/V (audio visual drive) that is meant for use in DVR's and other devices that need 24/7 drive activity. These are not geared for performance, just reliability.

Video playback will be fine. As I stated, these are used in DVR's (digital video recorders).

I've never actually used one, but I've had friends that used them as replacement/expansion drives in their TiVo's and they said they worked fine.
