Storage Drive

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have pretty much filled the storage on my network file server and need to add a drive to it. However, I have not been keeping up with hard drives at all lately, as far as whats good and what isnt. What I need is large capacity and most importantly, reliability. I want the drive to last as long as possible. Its going in a old rig that I use as a file server, so it doesn't have to be very fast.

What would you guys recommend? I was thinking a WD Caviar Green. Maybe this:

Yea thats what I was thinking.


Will the green drives last longer than the blue/black? I would think so considering that they are lower power/lower rpm.
