3 out of 5 eggsWorks okay

Pros: It works okay

Cons: It's slow but I knew that when I bought it. Should mention though that I have had 3 of these "green" drives from WD of varying sizes go bad in the last 3 years. I wound up giving them away as storage drives in computer builds, I don't trust them for long term storage.

Other Thoughts: None

2 out of 5 eggsGood While It Lasted

Pros: Worked great for a little while. Decent read/write speed. Only a few hiccups every now and then.

Cons: Drive completely failed exactly 6 months after purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsCan't beat it for the price

Pros: 1.5 terabytes for 65 is about as cheap as they come

Cons: This is a bare drive, which means it will need to be formatted before it can be used. Quick formatting didn't work for me, too many errors. Had to do a full format, which took hours.

Other Thoughts: This is used primarily as storage for steam games. It's been almost a year and no complaints so far.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet, Fast, Stable HDD with Tons of Space

Pros: • Price-per-GB. For the 1.5TB of space you get with this drive, it is a great value.
• Quiet. The WD Green series is WD's low-power, quiet HDD. It's not silent, as it's an HDD so it has a mechanical noise that all hard-disk drives have. But compared to most, this HDD is as quiet as some laptop hard drives.
• Stable. I've only owned this drive for 6~ months, but so far it has been performing flawlessly.
• Fast. It's Western Digital's slowest drive, but it's definitely not slow. While it's not a WD Black or Blue series, this drive has decent speed that works perfect as a data/secondary hard drive, but could easily be used as a boot drive too.

Cons: • Random pausing. The only con I have about this drive is its tendency to occasionally pause. What I mean by this is a few times a day (every couple of hours) this drive makes a mechanical noise almost like it does when it reads/writes data. Sometimes at random, other times when I access something such as the disk drive (C:, E:, etc) in Windows Explorer. When it does this, it pauses everything on my computer that was currently loading, until the noise stops, then it resumes. I don't remember 100% if my old system did this, it might have. This might be a completely normal function of hard drives for all I know.

Other Thoughts: This has been a great storage drive for me. 1.5TB is a good amount of space, and was just what I needed as I now already used 1.2TB of it in 6 months. For most people, 1.5TB is plenty of space for years worth of storage, however. While I use it as a storage drive rather than a boot drive, this could definitely be used as a main boot drive as I have no complaints at the speed. I have all of my games loaded to it and the loading times are pretty fast.

5 eggs for this drive (as long as it doesn't fail on me!) :D
