Any comments on getting the slower (3Gb/s instead of 6Gb/s), smaller cache (32 MB instead of 64 MB) model of the 2 TB WD Green drive?
When I went to Fry's the clerk gave me the slower, 32 MB cache model at $10 less than Newegg price (for the speedier, larger cache model I wanted them to price match).
He said the different model number was an update. I now think he mislead me. The packaging does not show the speed differnce or cache size, so it is possible he did not know. It was not until I checked at home that I see the WDBAAY0020HNC-NRSN has been shipping a good while so is not an update.
But is 3Gb/s, etc., a real loss?
I don't plan disk intensive uses, but will it annoy me over time?
Here are Newegg Links for the two 2 TB green drives
