3 out of 5 eggsIffy start

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD20EZRX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Price

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Bought 5 to put in a Synology NAS. I didn't do my homework other than to see if the drive was on the compatibility list. Looking back, maybe I should have gone red label (it works for Ruger, right??? :D )
One of the five drives arrived bad. Newegg Customer Service took care of it quick and easy.

4 out of 5 eggsLinux uses take care

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD20EZRX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Perfect so far - as always I ran a complete badblock scan before using the drive and it is clean. Performance is completely adequate for my system uses - music library, NAS for windows backups, and other small activities.

Cons: The head parking "feature" which defaults to 8 seconds and has a design max of 300000 parks is a problem for Linux use. You'll go way over the max unless you use hdparm to set the park time to at least 30 seconds. This is beyond most users competence.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD20EZRX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Got this on sale because an old seagate 1.5TB got the smart fail alert. I had the hard drive for about 3 years so it was about time. I purchased this for my mac pro tower and I mostly will use this for storing my media files/movies nothing too heavy. I chose the 2 tb model because of all the mixed reviews of the 3tb green. I could use the extra storage but reliability is more important at this point even though I back up. The install was easy, formatted quickly with disk utility and moved 1 TB of media files in about 3 hours through the network from my has (many many small files). It transferred everything on average about 65MB and was pretty quiet and didn't generate too much heat. Quick responsive read times and works fine with PS3 media server. I have usually had very good luck with WD greens so far, used to be seagate nut but man have they been failing lately, I have had 3 or so fail on me this year!

Cons: obviously not as fast write speeds/read but this isn't to be used as a primary HD

Other Thoughts: I have owned several green drives for various reasons (used to be for nas storage) Just remember if you buy this for your NAS it should work fine, BUT google TLER an just be mindful that it is a risk and your NAS could kick your drives out of raid because of the error correction. I mostly would recommend red if you have the money, if not check the compatibility list for your NAS and find the cheapest option and buy 1 spare.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD20EZRX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: It works. That's all you need from this drive.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Don't set this drive up as your main drive, you should have an SSD for that (or WD black @7200rpm). This works great as data storage.
