    Some google research :

    "The black is significantly faster than the blue in all tasks and is a far more reliable drive.

    You will notice a difference when loading maps and such in a game.

    If you play games or do video work (or anything else that requires moving data to/from the HDD) then a black might benefit you.

    If you don't do data intensive things than a blue will suffice."


    I say go for the WD Black.

    Blue is for solid performance and reliability for everyday computing, usually used for business computing, while Black for maximum performance for power computing, like gaming and video editing/rendering, among other demanding apps.

    The only people that notice the performance difference are people that read and write a lot of data to the HDD.

    Blue is perfectly fine for just storage, but if you're running the OS or other applications off the HDD than go for the Black or at least a Green.
