Almost 10 years.

  • Summary: After owning this unit for almost 6 years. I am very confident to say, this WD HD far exceeded my expectation of a green drive. It have almost 40,000 hours run time, more than 500 boot count. I used it for gaming, video storage, and BT download with no problem what so ever, and it is going strong.
  • Pros: Long life. Speed as expected. Never have any issue with different OS and MB
  • Cons: None.

I seem to get the bad ones?

Terry R., Newegg

  • Summary: On the other hand, the "Black" and "Red" WD series drives I purchase never break down on me.
  • Pros: Every single one of these "Green" WD drives I have purchased in the past have failed on me prematurely (within 2 years). I see many other reviewers reporting 3, 4, even 5 years from these things. Ugh, is it just my luck?
  • Cons: Don't last long enough.

Quality drive

Marco H., Newegg
28 February 2015
  • Pros: The drive runs cool and quiet. The speed is perfectly fine for a storage drive. I have had this drive for at least 5 years now. The "power on hours" in the SMART data shows just over 5 years of actual use. This drive has been quiet and reliable. These days it serves as a torrent drive that is see...
  • Cons: There are no cons. it's not a super fast drive, but it isn't intended to be.

  • Pros: Great hard drive. This is the hard drive I use in all my builds as a secondary internal hard drive. Great for storage to keep the main drive less cluttered and running well. First drive has been running great since 04/2011. Like previously stated, sometimes takes a few seconds to boot up, but has...
  • Cons: Sometimes a touch slow to get up and running in the morning. But utilized solely as an internal storage drive.

Working fine up til now

Anonymous, Newegg
9 January 2015
  • Summary: It should have issued a warning of some kind, slow start, delayed start basically spin up issues but there was not a single one.
  • Pros: Was a solid drive
  • Cons: No warning at all immediate failure. Normally with smart or other drive diags a warning will issue or so sectors start to go etc. Here the drive motor just fails and now all those GB of data is gone.

Still running 5 years 9 months

Chris B., Newegg
17 November 2014
  • Summary: Hopefully I can get some more life out of this and bide my time until the 6TB Red's come down in price. It was $93 (1TB Green) then, why is it $113 now?
  • Pros: Purchased on 2/13/2009, all 5 original drives still operating in my RAID 5 file server as of 11/17/14. I've been using it for a media server this whole time.
  • Cons: One of them is starting to make a grinding noise but I just backed up everything. But after this long, I find that quite acceptable.
