WD harddrive BLUE vs. BLACK ?

I'm going for the 2TB drive, and from what I gather, "Desktop Mainstream" seems to be the new Blue line. Because I can't find any 2TB in the Blue variety.

Desktop mainstream = Green in a retail box. AFAIK Blues don't exist above 1TB

Really? Well, it did sound sketchy that they did not advertise the actual RPM on the box. Looks like it's black or bust for me.

Pretty funny that everyone saying blacks are too loud don't own one and the people who do own blacks say they can't even hear them. I can't hear my black what so ever, my entire computer is so quiet that I can barely, and I mean barely, even hear it running if I have no sound going at all, and it's sitting on my desk less than 2 feet from me.
