I love the sponsored by wd right at the start, I appreciate it!

Chris Bourne says:

You got your bits and bytes mixed up on the write speeds mate..
Also a very brief glance at the specs shows significantly higher endurance rating on the blue – probably worth a mention.

Michael Graby says:

Thanks mate, nice and succinct 🙂

Thokozani Mtshali says:

Thanx B

Adrian Gigante says:

On point! Thanks.

Nicbread says:

You forgot Purple

be nice if WD had an Australian Region website shop. All you can select from ‘select your region’ is rest of the world. Hay Blunty, Can you please share exactly were does WD expect us Aussies can get these Green or Blue SSD drives you talk about ….

Thank you for the awesome video mate, I really enjoy the theme of Blue vs. Green. I appreciate sharing with us heaps of information about those 2 SSDs. I’m thinking to upgrade my (iMac 27′ Late 2013 32GB RAM )from HDD to SSD. I’m a casual user, I use my iMac for ripping CDs / Converting music files, browsing, saving my Microsoft/Apple Office important documents and of course a vast collection of photos. Plus sometimes I like to work multitasking at the same time (browser, email client, ripping CDs and photo’s editor) and I’m wondering between those:
1- Samsung 850 EVO 1TB $299.99
2- WD Blue SSD or WD Green SSD
3- Crucial’s MX300 SSD 1TB $283.07
4- SanDisk X400 SSD SATA 2.5″ 7mm 1TB $265.79

I hope you can kindly give me advice about an SSD that can combine Speed, reliability & longevity, yet don’t need that “WoOoW” performance as long as I can boot MacOS faster and a bit snappy than original HDD. Thank you in advance.

Fantastic video. Keep up the good work.

Simon Trevallion says:

great video 🙂 I had been wondering … in the end before seeing this I opted for green for a Windows drive … its amazing what it feels like to go back to a hard disk after using any SSD these days … rage ensues !!! I had a week without an SSD whilst my green was on the way …

Mark Gomes says:

Thank you !!!

Luiz Gustavo says:

Man, this is the most helpful video i’ve ever found about this article! Thank you so much!

sporkafife says:

I thought WD were slowly getting rid of the “Green” drives, and merging them under the Blue banner. Or is that just the spinny drives, and they’re deciding to keep the green for SSD’s?

Also, you missed out WD’s Purple!! Everybody’s favourite drive optimised for… surveillance cameras… yeah, I’ll forgive that one….

C A R L O S says:

Are you god? thank you

Ernest Jay says:

I love how you explaining SSD while walking in the park !

Jimaki _37 says:

I’m looking for the m.2 drive variant. The 240gb blue costs 5 euros more than the 240gb green on my search, so…

Patrick Williamson says:

Do more videos like this man i really like these.

Chantelle Hills says:

awesome video thanks Blunty!

Deletalee says:

thank you

EliteSpanishGamer says:

Gives me ideas on how to replace the mechanical drive in one of those cheaper gaming laptops.

Blizzard says:

Brilliant, mate. And super scenery. I’ve just got the green little fella (120GB) as its just for a Linux system that has little on it, mostly just uploading regular small files to a website on a shared hosting server in Sydney.
