Now Western Digital will have four WD series of Drives
WD BLUE – For mainstream

Usually, mainstream users get confused between WD Green and Blue. Western Digital is trying to simplify selection, so they unify the WD Green into WD Blue series products for the mainstream PC. The biggest difference between WD Green and WD Blue drives was the slower spindle speed of WD Green. The WD Blue feature a 7200rpm disk speed, while the WD Greens had speed between 5400rpm and 7200rpm. The WD Green drives were quite propeller, for their reduced power consumption and used for a mass storage drive. But Western Digital says WD Blue will give similar package with more performance.
