Thankyou ASHISH65 and rijinpk1 for your quick reply,

yes I can buy the RED drive but I want to know how much performance boost it has compared to WD Cavier Blue 1TB (Which I think you're using)
My WD Green Drive is very quite but it is SLOW :)
and I don't want to go for the WD Black drives coz cost wise its little bit expensive.
WD Green HDD comes with 2 year warranty and the Red comes with 3 YEAR warranty which is good.
Price of 2tb WD red drive according to theitdepot website is Rs.7670/-
which is also good but I have time till Wednesday to decide which one to buy from Ranchi.

WD red operates at 5400 rpm afaik and changes as its based on intellipower. it is a very durable drive as it is mainly intended for NAS. if it is used for just storing your files, it is more than enough. The I/O speeds are not higher though. so if you want high transfer speeds, you may need to look at wd black/blue drives. wd blue 2tb is not available here and black 2tb costs 10k. seagate may be little bit faster but the hassle of rma and just 2 years of warranty does not make it sweet.

My laptop HDD operates at 5400 rpm.
are you sure this WD Red drive is faster than my Green drive or its speed is same ?
if it operates at 5400 rpm then I think its speed will be same as my green drive.
and is WD 2TB Blue drive,available in india ?
or should I also buy WD 1TB Blue Drive which will give me better performance for sure compared to my existing 1TB WD Green Drive.

wd 2tb blue is not available in india. both wd green and red should be same when it comes to speed. both are energy efficient and hence operating at lower speeds than blue/black.
if you plan on installing os on that drive, then get black. it has 5 years of warranty too. else red should be fine.

Ok thanks,now the point is:
WD RED VS WD Green
Speed will be same but RED is more expensive because it has NAS features and has 1 year more warranty.
WD 2TB Blue (not available in india)

so finally should I go for:
WD 2TB Green Drive. (Slow Speed but very quite & reliable)
Or
WD 1TB Blue Drive. (Better performance than Green drive)

do you want to put your os on this drive? and red is much more reliable than green. red is designed to operate 24X7 with longer lifespan than green. i suggest red over green.

Reading some reviews about WD Red drives.
Yes they're more reliable because its specially made for NAS workstations.
will be reading few more reviews and then will decide which one to buy but as of now I'm again shifted towards RED :)

I remember a post in TDF where MSI India had said

"Thanks a lot for raising the concern and we appreciate for the same.
MSI is still very much involved in doing business in India with no issues as far as local product and service availability.
As for the local service is concerned, there is no change at all. We are offering 3 years warranty through our 3rd party service partner Digicare as before.
Yes, there are and will be cases where there is issues & conflicts but those are solved case by case as per the service policy."

oh wow...Xenforo!!!
I made that post.

FYI, they're still restructuring.

Dear Roshan,
We will get back to you once MSI-NB has fully established the channels re-launching in India. Thank you so much for contacting with us.
Yours, MSI HQ TW
