Which Hard Drive should i choose between the WD Blue and Black ?

The differences between both drives are the RPM ( Revolutions per minute ), the cache and the Warranty. If you have the budget we would recommend to go with the Western Digital Black over the Blue. The extra RPM will give you a performance boost of about 15%. For more information, we recommend you take a look at our guide on How To Select A Hard Drive
