    No issues, 4 years +

    I now actively use 5 of these drives. 3 for in case storage, 1 as an external drive for backups, and 1 as an off site backup that swaps with the other external drive. In four years, I have yet to have a drive die or complain to me. I can tell that the original drive I purchased has started to slow down, and I'll probably be turning that into one of my rotational backups soon, but no other issues. The one down side to these, is their spin up time. When the drives spin down, as part of their green feature, they can take 5-10 seconds to spin back up and be readable. But then again, I didn't buy these and expect black label quality.

    This drive replaced my older 160 Gb drive and I updated to Windows 7 Professional all at the same time. New OS loaded with no problem and I was able to move my old drive to an additional SATA slot and transferred all of my data off of the old drive right on to a clean load of Windows 7. All good so far.

    This is a very good secondary hard drive, It is reliable and decent price per gb ratio. However, it is not as fast as i expected. it is not fast as 7200rpm hard drive. I use it as a backup for my files and others. I may end up with getting a 7200rpm hard drive instead.

    I looked at the diffrence between the green and red for a nas and found that there really isn't much of a diffrence so I went with the green for my nas. They work well and I've had no problems with speed or efficeiceny.

    Ive only had it for a bit but it functions as good as any other wd hard drive ive had. I will say im a slight bit skeptical because my last energy saving drive died after 2 years... but im hoping that was a fluke (hence a 4 star rather than 5 star rating... for now)

    WD probably makes the best hard drives as everything else I have as failed within 3 years. Now this hard drive is in my home theatre computer and its working great!

    This hard drive is quiet and has lot of memory. I need to wait and see how reliable it will be for a couple of years. So far it is good.

    It works just as expected. No issues. I have had issues with other brands in the past and will buy nothing but Seagate

    I've used 4 WD Green HD's over the past 5 years and have never had one fail. Great for mass storage.

    Very Disappointing!

    Long Time WD fan and buyer. But this new crop of Green WD HDs seems like something has gone wrong with their QA control. Drive failed within a year. First time a WD drive failed on me. Made me think I had bought a Seagate by mistake. Still under warranty, but can't take advantage of it because I can't wipe the data before sending back.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
