Pros

great price per gig, efficient, quiet
Cons
none
Summary
installed as the primary drive in a new HTPC running windows 7 ultimate 64. Windows boots very fast and all my media plays back great without any hiccups. fairly quiet although you can hear it if you are sitting close to the case. Serves my needs perfectly.

Experience: 5 Months

Pros

- Still working after 5 months
- Good GB value
Cons
- N/A
Summary
I have been using this HDD for about 5 months now. The item still works. This HDD was one of the best GB prt $ value at the time or purchase (PM). I still have yet to fill up this HDD.

Experience: 2 Months

Pros

- Very quiet
- Low vibrations
- Good value, low $/GB.
Cons
- Average throughput ~65MB/sec
Summary
The WD Green line of drives are all very quiet. I recommend them to all my friends as media storage/backup drives. The 1.5tb is no exception. The drive only gets warm to the touch during long file copies.

I use this drive in a thermaltake dock with windows 7. Runs perfect, shuts down after 20mins idle.

Experience: 3 Months

Pros

Space
No issues
Cons
Speed
Summary
Well, this is fairly simple to review. What this hard lacks, that being that its speed is about 5400rpms rather than 7200rpms, it makes up with hard drive space and no issues. This hard drive was designed to be run primarily as storage, and that's what this thing does well.

Experience: 1 Months

Pros

Green - low power consumption, efficient etc
Cons
None for what I paid for it.
Summary
Bought this for my drobo which has gotten close to full on the 3 drives I have currently. Works flawlessly for my use. I wouldn't use it as an OS drive.
2TB drives were/are still too expensive $/GB

Experience: 2 Months

Pros

Cool
Quiet
Cost per GB
Cons
Best for storage not OS drive
Summary
I now have 5 of these drives in a Windows Home Server setup.
They stay cool with limited airflow and are quiet even while seeking. Best cost per GB until the 2TB models come down in price.

FYI: The newer WD EARS with 4K Advanced Format aren't supported by Windows Home Server. Stick with the EADS models for now.

Pros

Cheap, Western Digital, 3 platter design, Cool and quiet
Cons
none
Summary
I got 3 of these on sale a while ago because they were the most affordable hard drives then from a trustworthy company. No issues so far. Cool and quiet. 3 platter design. They are being used for storage so speed is not an issue.

Experience: 30 Days

Pros

Price, and Heat Throw
Cons
Speed
Summary
These drives are great low power drives that throw minimal heat. i bought 4 of these drives to use in my mediasonic probox and they are on average 10 degrees C cooler than my WD black and Seagate drives. of course these arn't high performance drives, but they work great for storage operations such as use in a NAS.

Pros

Lots of Storage, less power consumption
Cons
none
Summary
Bought 4 of these drives to go into my Mediasonic 4bay enclosure on boxing day sale. So far not a single problem with the drives.
