Summary: I purchased this drive unit to replace one that failed in my NAS. I had to buy the same kind in order to rebuild my RAID system. The previous two (of a similar WD model) failed after about 3 years.
Summary: The HDD was bought to use in a USB 3.0 enclosure. It fitted easily and is working well but only time will tell whether it is an excellent buy. I am tempted to get another to add internally to my PC.
Summary: I've had this mounted both internal and as an external HD in a USB3 enclosure Dynamode 3.5 USB 3.0 SATA Enclosure . In both cases it has worked brilliantly: quiet; fast (70Mb/s + via USB3) and without errors. I'm very satisfied and would buy again.
Summary: Green hard drives forfeit speed for a lower volume of noise. It runs very quietly, and it is considerably fast, so I think if you want a faster hard drive, you'd better go with buying a solid state drive as well as this one. This is a great product, and it is generally cheaper than the blue or black WD hard drives. Green hard drives boast less power consumption. I think it is not a considerable difference between other hard drives and green ones in this respect.
It works as boot disc. Don't understand why people say it's not.

Summary: I'm rectifying my previous review, after I found out that the problem of the HDD being slow on my 1st installation wasn't a problem with the HDD but the wireless drivers. When I first installed the HDD on a Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, I experienced that the installation was OK, but as soon as I booted I noticed that the HDD was VERY slow. Took me 30 minutes to install nVidia drivers! The computer seemed to freeze for 4-5 seconds constantly.
