Western Digital WD Green WD15EARX 1.5TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
  • Cool, quiet operation for efficient eco-conscious computing
  • Reduced power consumption
  • Eco-conscious design
  • 2-year limited warranty

Pros:

Shiny, Quiet, Cheap

Cons:

Post-flood GREEN drives from WD have gargage components. Buy a Black drive if you want "some" quality. Drive never did really work

Other Thoughts:

I bought several of these about 3-4 years ago, and they worked fine, till my daughter accidentally sent one to the floor (after tripping on a cable I use when plugging the drive externally. So Got a post-flood replacement via warranty, and THAT ONE never did work right. Sometimes it would connect, sometimes not, well a couple of weeks ago, it started smoking from the Motherboard. I emailed WD to try to get it replaced, and here ten days later, NOTHING REPLIED, (when they claim to reply within a day or two). So needless to say this put a sour taste in my mouth for the Green drive family of western digital. My replacement drive they sent will run out of warranty soon, and I don't expect they'll contact me AT ALL at this point. BIG THUMBS DOWN TO YOU WESTERN DIGITAL!!!!!
