Attitude has nothing to do with performance nor adequacy.
There are drives that are focused to be run to store data (slow rotation
→ long life, power-saving capabilites...) while others are to be run over
systems that "needs for speed", reliability and/or maximum performance.
Back to your question: is it worth the black edition for non specific

Okay, what are both prizes (blue and black) and what's the exact blue
model? But I bet yes, black edition features a 5-year guarantee and only
for that I would add extra pennies to the buy.
