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 
purpose and generally speaking? 

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.
