Pros:

RMA process is easy.

Cons:

Arrived DOA, a first for me on Newegg.
It grinds, tries to spin up over and over, and hangs the BIOS.

Other Thoughts:

I have another one of these, along with several 2TB WDs, running long & strong.
(1 five Egg for that one + 1 one Egg for this one) / 2 = 3 Eggs.

It was packaged decently, I don't believe the DOA was Newegg's fault.

Manufacturer Response:

We appreciate your feedback and apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced with the WD Green, as this is not the typical experience with the product. Each of our drives is rigorously tested before leaving our warehouses to ensure that they are in good working condition before leaving our warehouses. There are many variables that could amount to a drive emitting unusual sounds when powering on your computer. To test our drives health, we have our Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows (WinDLG) utility, and Mac users can of course use Disk Utility and First Aid. For information on how to use the WinDLG utility, please view the information provided by the following link.
