Green - Power saving. Cheap.
Blue - Middle ground between Green and Black; mainstream.
Black - Performance. Less cheap.
Red - NAS use. Even less cheap.
Purple - Surveillance.

I'd recommend a Green or Black depending on your budget.

Blue would be the mainstream.

Yeah. I've noticed you don't tend to see desktop Blues these days, but I come across laptop ones all the time at work.

Blues here are probably some of the most bought besides the Seagate 1TB.

Thanks again!

I compared the Blues to the Blacks, and what I like about the Blacks is that they come with a 5 year warranty, while the Blues only have a 2 year warranty.
I Think I might get a WD 3TB Black.

I was more replaying to Yami since I can't quote while at work. I typically don't look at HDD warranties that much as to me if they will die it'll be within a year or so. If not, they'll usually last more than 10 years.

Thanks for the link! But I live in Europe, so ordering form the US would add shipping and import duties.

Oh, ok, I did not know that. I just thought I had my mind made up, back to the decision making .... which I am not good at when it comes to pick a product among many choices....
I noticed the Blues have 5400rpm while the Blacks have 7200rpm. Will that be a big and noticeable difference in speed?

The Blue I linked is 7200. They come in both flavors, and yes there's a difference.
