    Great choice for silent operation and massive capacities. And not as bad transfer rates as i thought. Write: 120mb/s Read: 130mb/s

    I've had this drive for 3 years now as my primary storage for Media. It's cheap, reliable and saves on energy. Hopefully it will continue to bring me more years of reliable storage with no issues. I would only recommend using this as a storage drive as it's rather slow with only 5400RPM speed.

    I bought this after my previous Western Digital drive died. Im hoping this one actually lasts. Having said that performance is good and i have yet to see any reliability issues from THIS drive.

    The only reason I have this hard drive is because my friend broke the 1TB Blue that I originally had, so he gave me this one. Plenty of storage and has been very reliable. WD never disappoints.

    Salvaged from a earlier build (2014). No issues running it so far with FreeNAS for the last few years.

    Went for the Green for the low decibel level of operation. Never had any problems with WD.

    I know they are not of great quality but they've done their jobs for about 5 years now and I always back up important stuff to the cloud.

    Drive is pretty slow, even for 5400RPM standards. Not used for anything critical, just long term storage for media files and some backups.
