This is a WD GREEN drive disguised-

Summary: This drive did not mention that it was a green drive. I would not have purchased had I known it was a green drive. I am using this in a 16-channel DVR so reliability is worth the extra money. I don't have time to mess around with sending this back to get a non-green WD. I will update this for reliability.
Good but nvidia chipset owners -it does not show 3tb unless you have this...

Summary: I am rewriting this review because I found a solution. So, if you are an owner of a slightly older PC (like me) from say 2006 or 7 and, you have a motherboard with the NVidia chipset you need at least version 15.58 of the driver - which as of this writing was not the one in the "latest drivers" section, however; you can simply type it into the search and once your machine restarts you can see all 3tb. You will find the driver on the NVidia website.
Summary: As with many others i ordered this HDD and the one i received was DOA. i went through Amazons great exchange process, had a replacement unit within 2 days that has been working wonderfully for almost a month now. This is a great price for a huge drive. Dont let the DOA issues concern you too much unless you are an extreme rush. If you happen to get a bad unit Amazon will address the issue promptly.
Summary: Unfortunately I had to return the product after two days, which meant I just managed to format and move my files, when write problems start to occur and the Western Digital disk check flagged too many errors to finish. Thanks to Amazon the return was no problem (money back within five days after posting). I still give three stars, because maybe it was just one faulty drive under a million.
Summary: Sicher eine gute und günstige Festplatte. Da ich sie erst ein paar Tage habe, will ich zur Leistungsfähigkeit nichts sagen. Das Formatieren gestaltet sich aber ziemlich mühsam. Mein Rechner mit I7 Prozessor und Sata II ist jetzt 1 1/2 Jahre alt. Da sollte eine solche Platte kein Problem sein, dachte ich. Als ich die Platte aber in den Wechselrahmen steckte, zeigte sich eine Kapazität von ca. einem Viertel ( statt 3TB also nur ca. 750 GB).
