    Opinions on this Hard Drive incl, performance, cost, etc.
    (Caviar Blue means all around good which meands that it's a balance between performance (Caviar Black) and (Caviar Green Power) which is lower power consumption hence green for the planet - for those that did not know)

    Agree with above. While hard drive performance theoretically differs, you are unlikely to notice it in real life. The key thing is the 7200 rotation. Any drive rotating at 7200 will have similar performance. All the main manufacturers have similar reliability. However, you can pick up 1Tb drives around the £50 mark these days - why pay £40 for a 500Gb drive?
