After I returned my 1st Green drive for warranty (due to an accidental drop from my 6 yr. old). Western Digital sent me a post-flood replacement drive (after I paid for the postage ($25.00), and the replacement drive they sent me NEVER really did work properly. I used it as an external drive to store ALL my home videos (total of 125 DVD's), which I stored in a Safety deposit box to keep it safe, and using it only to update videos to it. Anyway, sometimes the drive would spin, sometimes not, and would require several attempts of plugging it to my PC to get it to work, WELL Within 3 yrs "supposed" warranty of the replacemnt drive, it started smoking and now ALL my videos are trapped in the drive and are unobtainable. This experience put a sour taste in my mouth in buying ANY future GREEN drives. The point of this review is to warn YOU...Buy anything OTHER than a WD GREEN drive! Take it for what it's worth. I will probably still buy Western Digital, but will no longer purchase any of their green drives. I read too many review warning that they're junk compared to the Black drive, and after this experience, I BELIEVE THEM NOW.
Stick to Black drive, the post-flood green drives are garbage
