Available in capacities up to 3 TB, WD Caviar Green SATA hard drives reduce power consumption by up to 40% and offer best-in-class acoustics and operating temperature. Based on exclusive WD Green Power Technology, these drives are designed to deliver power savings as the primary attribute. As hard drive capacities increase, the power required to run those drives increases as well. WD Caviar Green drives make it possible for energy-conscious customers to build systems with higher capacities and the right balance of system performance, ensured reliability, and energy conservation. They are ideal for PCs, external storage and other devices that require lower power consumption and cool, quiet operation.
Pros: -Large storage space
Cons: Price, see other
Other Thoughts: I Read some reviews and was nervous about buying and getting this from shipped since many people get it DOA. I ended up buying it from a local outlet for a lower price and it works like a charm.

Pros: None really.
Cons: Defective. When I put it the computer I heard loud strange noises coming from the hard drive immediately. This hard drive made the motherboard reboot over and over until it just *killed* the motherboard. Now looking at the other reviews, I wouldn't trust these drives with my data even if I got a replacement. Do yourself a big favor and avoid. Now I have a dead motherboard!

Pros: Great capacity, low power draw, mostly quiet (see note in con)
Cons: Only complaint is that some times I can hear the r/w noise. Only noticeable when I am surfing on the media center with no audio playing so it is most likely in the 19 to 21 db range basis the distance I sit.
Other Thoughts: Nice drive for an HTPC.
