Pros

1 TB
Cons

5400 RPM
SLOW
Summary
Was cheap when i bought it. It's not worth the $$ right now.

Pros
Quiet
Reliable
Cons
Price, but not much you can do about that
Summary
Bought 2 of these for a raid1 setup to store all my brother's media. With hdd prices, it wasn't cheap, but I managed to pricematch them down to $118 a pair. Overall solid drives that should last.

Pros
Very reliable. Good value at the time I purchased it(pre Thailand floods).
Cons
Slow.
Summary
I'm surprised this HDD is still working considering how often I use it. I put all my media on it and run it 12 hours a day for the past 2 years.

I've dropped it off the table a few times while moving it around during computer upgrades.

I'd probably buy another one once HDD prices stabilize. But I'd use it solely for back up only.

Pros
good price, capacity, quiet, good warranty
Cons
none
Summary
Bought two of these for use in hotswap bays for storage purposes.
Didn't need anything overly fast and these fit the bill perfectly.

Price matched for an even better deal!

Pros
Quiet, works.
Cons
Kinda slow at 5400.
Summary
Due to the hdd price spike I had to cheap out a bit on the newest system I built, thus this hdd. It is kinda slow for a new system but it works great, and is very quiet.

Pros
-I've had a high success rate with Caviar Greens
-Cheap
-Great for cheap builds
Cons
-Not that fast, but if you're buying a green drive, you probably aren't getting it for its performance.
Summary
This is my 5th Caviar Green drive and so far, I haven't had a single one fail on me yet. Knock on wood. To me, that is a good sign of build quality. Comparably, I've had Seagates fail on me left right and center. I would certainly pick more of these up as they get cheaper and larger drives come out.

using this as a backup drive along with 160GB SSD and another 500GB HDD, so far they work pretty good together, transfering files between drives are extremely fast

Summary
I use this paired with the BlackX box and it works like a charm. So far very reliable and tons of space to backup my data. Another GREAT drive by Western Digital, the best HD company.

Comment: Spinning at somewhere between 5400-7200 RPM, this drive sacrifices some performance for a lower ecological and monetary footprint.
