How does the Western Digital AV-GP differ from the competition?
This particular WD drive offers SATA 3.0Gb/s in comparison to the 6.0Gb/s interface found on the other three drives. It shouldn't matter though, as none of the products in this article can come close to hitting the maximum throughput of a SATA 3.0Gb/s connection. WD doesn't specify the spindle speeds of their Green hard drives, but expect a speed closer to 5400RPM than the 7200RPM of the other drives features here.
