WD80EFBX vs WD80EFZZ
|Internal Transfer Rates||210 MB/s||185 MB/s|
WD80EFZZ sells at a lower price point compared to WD80EFBX due to lower hardware specifications.
WD60EFPX vs WD60EFZX
There is minor difference in the RPM ( 5640 RPM is a new class of RMPs with WD) so the transfer rates on both the drives are almost same.
|Internal Transfer Rates||180 MB/s||185 MB/s|
WD140EFGX vs WD140EFFX
The only difference between the 2 drives is that WD140EFFX may be seen as a 5400 RPM drive by the host even though its a 7200 RPM drive. WD140EFGX will be seen correctly as 7200 RPM. All other hardware specifications are the same.
