Pros: Quiet, low power, tons of space

Cons: Price

Bought 3 of these a year ago (for RAID1 and an external backup). I haven't had a problem, until recently. One of the drives started in with a SMART error. A quick RMA to Western Digital fixed it however. My other 2 drives still function flawlessly.

Getting ready to setup a RAID5 with them once my replacement comes in. Wish me luck, as I've heard they don't like higher levels of RAID too well. We'll see....

I would happily buy more of these drives (I actually want to), but not for the $300 they cost right now. Once they drop back down to regular prices, I'll be buying more of them.

Description:

WD Advanced Format technology increases media format efficiency, thus enabling larger drive capacities. WD Advanced Format drives are specifically optimized for Mac and the latest Windows operating systems such as Windows Vista and Windows 7. WD Advanced Format drives work with legacy operating systems such as Windows XP but require the use of the free WD Align software available on www.wdc.com/advformat.Available in capacities up to 2 TB, WD Caviar Green SATA hard drives reduce power consumption by up to 40% and offer best-in-class acoustics and operating temperature. Based on WD's exclusive GreenPower technology, these drives are designed to deliver power savings as the primary attribute. As hard drive capacities increase, the power required to run those drives increases as well. WD Caviar Green drives make it possible for energy-conscious customers to build systems with higher capacities and the right balance of system performance, ensured reliability, and energy conservation. They are ideal for PCs, external storage and other devices that require lower power consumption and cool, quiet operation.
