4 out of 5 eggsOkay drive

Pros: Had it for 6 years and still working.
SMART readout says about 3 years of usage and over 1000 days to go.

Cons: Parks heads

Other Thoughts: Parks heads which save electricity, but has the occasional freezing with games and movies.
Still a great storage drive.

2 out of 5 eggsfirmware flaw

Pros: Worked good for a while

Cons: I have 3 green drives and 2 have started acting up. Writing to the drive becomes very slow and gets slower as the transfer gets closer to finsihing. Theres are tons of complaints on the WD forums and WD does nothing to help.

4 out of 5 eggs4 years and then...

Pros: Reliable
Reasonable cost at the time
SATA 3gb
Capacity

Cons: Slow, it's the weakest link in my RAID-5.
Reliable until it is 4 years old.

Other Thoughts: Disk is in the process of dying after 4 tenuous years of abuse. I'm about to replace it with a equi-sized Caviar Black, the Greens are too slow and I hear about them dying after 3 years regularly after constant use.

3 out of 5 eggsRaid array

Pros: Large size, good speed, better energy efficiency than most other hdds.

Cons: Built my own computer using two of these in a raid array, worked fine for a few months, then the slaved hdd failed bios, degrading the raid. WD sent a new one through their rma, but recently the other hdd failed the exact same way. Finally had both fail the other night, I have heard from several of my techy friends that the green series can be fickle. Looks like they were right.

Other Thoughts: I'll probably upgrade to the black series.

5 out of 5 eggsRUNNING SMOOTH

Pros: I have 2 of these 1TB drives. One’s been running trouble free for 2+ years & the other for 4+ months.
Both of the other bad drives were very promptly replaced by WD. WD has printable return shipping for under $6. The one where they ship a replacement 1st, secured by a credit card until the RMA one arrives, took less than 5 business days to arrive. The RMA one that I shipped & upon arrival at WD, would ship a replacement took a total of 7 business days for drive in hand.

Cons: NONE WITH THIS MODEL
