Whats the difference between the "regular" ST2000DM001 and the "green" ST2000DL003 ?
The specs seem to be the same on Amazon. I couldn't even find the ST2000DL003 on Seagate's Barracuda product page !?
Could someone please tell me the difference between ST2000DM001 vs. ST2000DL003?
Any recommendation on which one to buy (ST2000DM001 is $10 cheaper).

7200 RPM vs 5900 RPM
Green drives aren't very good, so pick the DM.

They just don't seem to last long, it's the top Seagate model for early death and even WD has issues with their greens, as slave drives I think they are about where they are designed for, as boot drives buyer beware, and as raid drives totally unsuitable.
