WD Caviar Green (3TB)

PC Magazine
4 July 2011
  • Conclusion: Western Digital obliterates all heretofore known storage boundaries with its 3TB Caviar Green, the largest on the planet. But this internal hard drive's platters are piled with caveats.
  • Pros: Highest-capacity hard drive on the market.
  • Cons: Slow for a 3.5-inch drive. Will not work in Windows XP systems. May require an adapter card. Cannot be used as a boot drive on most PCs.

  • Summary: Despite the potential incompatibilities with older systems, this drive rocks. It’s the most performance we’ve seen out of the Green Drive series to date. The low power means that it will work nicely in devices like NASs and external enclosures that are designed to have a low energy footprint.

Western Digital Caviar Green 3TB Hard Drive Review

Hardware Canucks
29 December 2010
  • Conclusion: On the performance front this drive may not win any speed contests against products boasting faster rotational speeds….but then again it wasn’t meant to. The Caviar Green 3TB is meant to be a low power, low noise, high capacity product and it hits every one of those points.
  • Cons: - While a good value it still is a lot of money for one drive, - Not recommended for an OS drive. Rather, wait for the Black version, - Only a 3 year warranty
