    WD HDD Colour codes - confused -- any help

    Hi there
    Looking at WD HDD's these days I feel one needs to be a member of The Rainbow Coalition to make any sense of them.

    Anybody know what the difference is between BLACK, GREEN, RED, BLUE, PURPLE etc HDD's from WD.
    I'm sure some are for servers / enterprise quality, other consumer stuff but I haven't a clue on what the various designations are.

    Any help or decent UNDERSTANDABLE links please.
