Western Digital WD Green WD20EADS 2TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Inexpensive, Low power consumption

Cons: Not suited for back-up usage

Other Thoughts: Purchased this for a Mac Pro G5 as 2nd bay storage for use with Time Machine back-ups. After a little over 2 years, the drive failed and was unable to be written to.

Western Digital WD Green WD10EARS 1TB 5400 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Low $/GB, Low power consumption

Cons: Not meant for back-up storage, Unreliable

Other Thoughts: Purchased this to use with an OWC external FireWire 800 enclosure for use as the drive for Apple Time Machine backups. Apparently, this drive was not up to the task and died after a little over a year and a half. Still under warranty, so RMA going back to Western Digital.

Western Digital Blue WD6400AAKS 640GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked flawlessly for three years as a back-up drive. Used Time Machine with it for the last 18 months. Quiet and reliable while under warranty.

Cons: All of a sudden, it wouldn't mount. Disk Utility repair failed. Was unable to recover using Disk Warrior, but it confirmed a hardware malfunction.
