Does the job and is cheap per GB = 5 stars.

General data storage. I picked the WD green because I wanted something that was built for efficiency and reliability. Even though it's a slower 5400RPM drive, I knew that for my normal usage that I do not access the "long-term" storage too much during my work flow and that I just need the drive there for keeping things that I need to hold onto but don't necessarily need to interact with every day. It only winds up when I need to access it but quickly lowers power consumption when it's not in use. Basically WD Blue with a different power usage algorithm. Has been great so far and I don't see it being replaced any time soon.

I heard WD is a very reliable brand. 1TB drive for a good price point and it has not failed on me yet. It's been less than a year since I got this, but I feel pretty confident in this drive.

I can't give three stars because it's so much slower than an SSD. I knew what I was getting. Nice mass storage.

O'll Green has been with me for a long time now but still dependable. I will be shifting to 2.5 drives from now on for the reason that they are small and very lite to carry and consumes less power. I remember my old builds where I have 5 of this in my full ATX case.....it's like going to the gym lifting weights so I can clean it.

Remnants from past builds, big but reliable.

This part was actually retained from a former employer who didn't want his external HD anymore. Formatted and used for non-SSD storage. Works perfectly.

Loud as balls, but can't complain because I got it for free and it boots up really quick.
