    "Love it...Works OK...I am pleased with this drive as it has served me well so far, BUT I regret not spending the extra $ on the GOLD enterprise class drives as they are substantially less likely to lose all of your data due to a minor earthquake or someone bumping your PC... I will be purchasing a few GOLD drives as my primary means of backups as I do not trust these after hearing how many people have lost their data....I have had the best reliability with Hitachi enterprise SATA as well as the non-green WD drives like these."
