Get the Black WD drives

  • Summary: Green drives from WD seem a good deal slower than Black. Next time I'll spend the little extra money and buy the Black version.

Not reliable

Rhonda L., Newegg
27 August 2014
  • Summary: I have 4-5 of these drives. 3 of them have failed after ~2 years and WD refuses to replace them. I understand that they are out of warranty, but such a high failure rate, to me at least, indicates a poorly made product. I am very disappointed that they will not do anything to remedy the situation.
  • Pros: Capacity
  • Cons: Speed, reliability
