I'm intrigued by this. I thought that this problem doesn't concern hdds at all. So just "using" a drive in a computer can wear it down in some sense? So playing music from your hard drive is a bad idea? I thought they were meant to be "used" 24/7. Just like CPUs, Video cards, Ram etc... are.

It's more to the fact that they have a lot of power saving features that would affect performance. If you're just browsing the web you aren't intensively using the drive.

Nah he has to be talkin pish, I have 2 WD greens of different capacities in a gaming system and neither have had a single problem.

I see, are the current gen of the greens as reliable as the blues for archiving purposes? (in external enclosure).

Thanks.
