Hi,i 'm looking for a HD to buy,i already have a SSD for the OS
I will manly use it for storage and to run multiple copy of the same game using a VM.
i heard that WD blue is good and reliable while WD Black is a bit better but also more noisy,what d you suggest?
I was more oriented to WD black due to have better performance but is the noise difference between black and blue so noticiable?
7200 rpm blues are just as fast as blacks once your data outflows the extra cache that the black has. 8 or 16mb on the blue and 32 or 64 on the black usually (notice its MB and not GB) . The blacks have a much better warranty which is the bulk of the cost difference. Noise-wise they should be the same if the rpm's are the same.
