So is a 1TB HD faster then a 2TB, or 3TB disk?

Just know that you may not like the speed decrease that comes with it. Because these drives are intended to be eco-friendly and use less power, they run cooler and slower. WD wouldn't even tell us the drive's rotational speed—which suggests it's probably well below the 7,200 rpm threshold for standard desktop drives. Its results in our performance tests bear this out. Compared to a 7,200-rpm 2TB Caviar Black, it finished considerably slower in every benchmark we ran: 130.1 MBps versus 147.3 MBps linear read speeds in AIDA64; 128.4 MBps versus 152.1 MBps sequential reads in CrystalDiskMark 3.0, and 126 MBps versus 149.8 MBps in sequential writes; and a score of 4,077 versus 6,131 in the PCMark Vantage HDD Test. HDTune reported an average transfer rate of 109.5 MBps for the Caviar Green, and 117.2 MBps for the 2TB Caviar Black. AIDA64 reported an average read access time of 14.48 ms for the Caviar Green; for the Caviar black, it was 11.41 ms.

Speeds are good then. Got an average of 130 when copying some medium to larger files.
