Which Hard Drive should i choose between the WD Green and Purple ?

The Green Drive was created mainly for External Drive Enclosures (External Hard Drives) and for Storage use as a secondary drive in a Personal Computer. They do not make a lot of noise and stay cool longer.

The Purple Drive is only for Security Surveillance System, they can handle a workload of over 180TB / yr. They are equipped with technology that lets you register up to 64 cameras at the same time.

There is, unfortunately, no clear winner as you should pick the one with the features you need.
