between WD caviar black and blue?
i hear some say black boots faster but a see great reviews about blue. whats the real difference
The black has more cache iirc. 64MB vs 32MB. Speed will be almost identical for most things though the blacks bench slightly higher.
This Caviar blue has also 64MB http://pcpartpicker.com/part/western-digital-internal-hard-drive-wd10ezex
I think the Blue has 2 Years Warranty while the Black has 5 years.
Ah yes, the warranty on the Black is also longer.
^What they said. Keep in mind that you most likely won't notice any performance increases in daily use
Black is faster overall than Blue. If looking for technical results/charts, Storage Review
