If they're all the same price get the re3, but since they're not its re3>black>blue.

Thanks. Do they all produce the same level of noise? or do they differ?

Also will the 640gb version be faster then the 750gb since it uses 2 platters instead of 4?

Yes.

Platter density is the best indicator of performance, much more so than cache.
