What other tests?  The disks suck, how are more tests going to improve
the situation?

I see no reason why sector size should be a selection criterium.  Just
buy the disk that gives you the best performance and / or capacity for
your money.  WD Green disks are cheap, but other vendors offer models
with the same capacity and twice the speed for only 5% or 10% more.
