Hey all,
I'm currently looking at HDD's for a new build and I'm just wondering whether there would be any noticable performance difference between a 500GB and 1TB WD Caviar Blue HDD?
Thanks

apparently due to data density a higher capacity drive of the same rotational speed always has a higher transfer rate .... is that right? can someone comment?

It's probably 500GB platters, so I expect performance would be the same.

If you want better performance go for WD Black or Seagate barracuda. WD Blue is their midrange/value product.
