5900 vs 7200 rpm : Hard disk

I was planning to buy external hdd but due to non availability of Seagate USB3 as well as high price...I am going with internal

Two choices:
1) Seagate Barracuda Green 5900rpm 64mb 6GB/s 2TB - 4.6k
2) Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm 32mb 3gb/s 2*1TB - 5.4k


1) Can I use Seagate Green as Primary HDD (Install Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit)
How's the speed and performance compared to other?

2) Which one is more reliable ?

7200 rpm will give you a better performance than 5900. Are you sure it is 5900 rpm? Is it not 5400 rpm? Also I read somewhere in this forum that 1TB HDD are not to be purchased ever, but I am not sure if it is true anymore. So please wait for others to confirm.

Never use green drives as primary(to install OS and apps) always use green as storage purposes only!!

i would pick 7200 rpm with 32MB or more buffer. better access times, more bandwidth.

Wow. No one bothered to confirm about the 1TB problem I mentioned. And OP has bought a 1TB HDD already. I guess thread closed :/

I am using 1 TB WD HDD. It's working fine for last 3-4 months now.
And it's heavily used. ~20 Hrs. a day.

I read in what-not-to-buy section that 1TB hard drives should never be bought. So I want to know if it is true anymore.
