So i am getting a new 1TB hdd to use as a primary drive for gaming, movies,OS etc. But i am confused whether to go for wd green,blue or black drive? Price of green and blue are similar but black is more expensive. Which will be the best option according to my usage and please tell me what are the current prices of 1TB drives these days.
My budget is 5k max and i don't have money for SSD.

My local computer guy is doing all the work like assembling the hard drive installing the OS and other programs so he is charging extra.Also he says if any problem occur he will handle the servicing i do not need to run to service centers myself. So he charges extra for his 'premium' services.
 
WD provides prepaid pickup from your home. The extra charges for installing pirated os and some softwares is not at all justified. Also, if he specifically mentions to bring the hard disk to him, he may probably be selling a duplicate disk. Better get one from other shop or online.

No the hard disk is legitimate i saw it myself i built my entire sig rig from him he just charges 10% extra for convinience.No fake parts but charging extra is a little sleazy i know but since i dont know to build and assemble a pc someone has to do it for me right? Also he is one of the most reputed assemblers in mumbai his assembled pc's are used by schools and hotels.

You can get WD Black 500GB HDD for Rs.5000 or a WD Blue 1.5TB HDD for Rs.5000.
