In terms of performance, this 'green' drive produces reasonable results, matching the likes of the 2TB comparison drive from Seagate in some metrics, and losing out in others.
The differences are generally slight though, and essentially these figures show that despite it's green-angle, it's in the same ballpark.
If you are interested in an all-round performance offering, and less bothered about your power consumption, than the Blue and Black renditions should be winging their way to the virtual shelves soon though.
