These are two more HDDs (one is black edition 7200 rpm 5 years old, other is blue edition 5400 5 months old).
It seems that both drives have similar performance, but how to know which one is really better from the attached picture? HDD 75PK4 (WD black edition) seems to have constant performance over time. On the other hand, WD blue has higher burst rate.

Hi All, My PC's Windows Experience index rating is currently at 5.9 due to my HDD. It's a Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500GB. Which HDD should I look at to get more performance out of the rig? All the other fields are in the 7.0 to 7.6 range. Thanks!
