[Best Buy] WD Caviar Green 2TB $79.99 FS or store pick up - Page 3

^To add on to that info, I hear platter size matters as well. Bigger platters mean faster HDDs as well, which explains why the 2TB F4 5400rpm is almost as fast as the 1TB F3 7200rpm.

I don;t really care about speed as I am just using it in a HTPC (for music movies and recording TV). The decision I face is if I should get the SATA III WD Green for $80 from someone who claims it is new (taken out of MyBook which means warranty might be void) or go to Best Buy and get the SATA II for the same price?

Question: I'm running a single 1TB Green drive and was originally planning to RAID 0 two Black 1TB RE4 drives and get a 120GB SSD. Obviously two raided black drives will smash a single green drive, but is it worthwhile if only for data and media? The price and failure risk avoidance of this 2TB green drive are not insignificant.

Greens won't be able to do 6GB/s transfer rates, so both are fine. If you're worried about warranty, go with the Best Buy one, I guess.

2TB Green drive is fine/made for media and data (I assume data =/= games?). Put everything requiring speed (OS and all that other stuff you probably know already) on the SSD, all the media and data on the 1TB and 2TB Greens, and you'll be perfectly fine. And save money, too! Unless you meant insignificant in your original post.

Thank you for the direction! Yes, games would go on the SSD; and nothing wrong with saving money, since the two RE4 drives cost a multiple of this Green drive!

The WD20EARX is slightly faster than the WD20EARS. It has nothing to do with being SATA2 or SATA3 - but the WD20EARX is SATA3 and the WD20EARS is SATA2.

I would probably go for the drive with the non-voided warranty.

These are good drives but hence the 'Green' they are eco friendly. These drives are only 5400RPM :S so they are slower but for 'Big' storage they are fine just I wouldn't use them as boot drivers or storing and loading apps of them only for storage really because of the speed of the drive.

I bought one. The guy there said some lunatic bought over $8000 dollars in hard drives. Wow.
