Default What's the difference between these two HDDs?

What's the difference between the Maxtor 6B200R0 and 6L200R0? I've done research on this, but I've only found that there are a lot less search results for 6L200R0. Also, 6L200R0 is not found on the Maxtor website. My local store has both, the 6B200R0 costs $139 CAD and the 6L200R0 $145 CAD, and the 250gig versions cost $169 and $189 respectively, so the 6L is more expensive, but why?

ask in the shop, see if they know.

possibly faster rpm, or bigger cache maybe?

No, they have the same rpm and cache.

May I ask why you want a Maxtor hard drive? They really aren't that good...

Its fast. By the way, I found the difference. The only difference between the 6B and 6L is that the 6L is Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) compliant (doens't have any lead in it).
