What are you going to be using the drive for? I see people say to maybe use a Black over a Blue if you want to install your OS on it, but either way both drives are good. I needed a drive just for my games and movies, and the Blue's doing a good job so far. Like said on the first page, it probably comes down to warranty. Would you rather spend $25 more to get a 5 year warranty vs. save $25 and get a 2 year? Blue's (from my own benchmarks and others) and slightly faster than some Blacks, and quieter too. I don't think you can go wrong on either one.
