3 out of 5 eggsLasted about 11 months

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD10EARX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Cheap and the usual quick shipping from Newegg. Had to return one of the pair I ordered initially -- DOA. No problems returning it, of course.

Cons: This was a pair of 1TB's installed in RAID and striped. Workstation was operating 24/7/365 (Linux Workstation running BOINC for "Asteroids at Home calculation application"). You know that sound when you hear it ... Screeeeeeech ... sort of like one of my former mother's-in-law's commentary to me. Anyway. I figure for what $80.00 a 1TB ought to last a bit more than a year ... but I am writing this to give you a heads up. Caveat Emptor and Molon Labe or whatever.

Other Thoughts: I buy everything from Newegg .. can't beat the prices or the service.

Manufacturer Response:

Pros: Good value for price, usually good experence with WD

Cons: DOA,

Other Thoughts: Was in a strange box, like it was a return sent back out.

Would not take a partition at first, then was super slow to format. Also lost it format after reboot.

3 out of 5 eggs2 Bought - 1 Bad

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD10EARX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: SUPER QUIET

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Hard Drive so far...

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD10EARX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Works at a fair rate
Fast
Saves energy...

Cons: Started clicking after 5 days with it, its also the loudest component in my computer, which is unfortunate. Because i honestly thought my 4 200mm Fans were louder. It also blue screened on me once, of course i freaked out and backed everything on my computer up on a Seagate Backup drive. It better not blue screen again or ill have no choice but to return it to newegg.

Other Thoughts: This drive is great for first time computing but when it comes to performance the Drive isnt good. Save your money up and get a WD Black or a Seagate Baracuda.

3 out of 5 eggsGood for storage, awful for gaming or iTunes playback

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD10EARX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: This is certainly a 5400 RPM drive. I really like having the 64 mb cache but the platters spin way too slowly for iTunes playback even with standard definition. Lots of stuttering. I also tested this with Star Wars: The Old Republic and Guild Wars 2 and way too slow to load up and during level switching.

I suggest going at least 7200 RPM. This drive however is wonderful for storage of files and backup so I guess that this is best relegated for that purpose.

Cons: Too slow at 5400 RPM for video playback or gaming.

Other Thoughts: Unlike Seagate, I never had a Western Digital go out on me. This is very reliable drive at least.

Manufacturer Response:

We appreciate your feedback and apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced with the Caviar Green 1 TB, as this is not the typical experience with the product.
Please note that our WD Green line of internal hard drives are designed for use as secondary drives in PCs, for external enclosures and other applications for which low noise, low heat and low power consumption are the priority. For drives oriented more on the side of performance, you might be interested in the WD Blue, WD Black or VelociRaptoir line. Click on the following link for more information.
http://www.wdc.com/en/products/internal/desktop/
To be sure that your Caviar Green is performing as it should, we recommend running either our WINDLG diagnostics software or Macs built-in Disk Utility to check your drives health.
