5.0 out of 5 stars Great Media/Backup Drives in NAS Servers 27 Jan 2013
Style Name:Standard|Verified Purchase
I have several Western Digital 2 TB Caviar Green drives in my HP Microserver, their energy saving and power efficiency makes them excellent drives to use in home servers. You get great speeds with them despite being "green" drives so they function in any scenario such as backup or media serving. They also run nice and cool too, on average a couple of a degrees cooler than Seagate drives also in use in my HP Microserver.

They are very reliable drives after years of use and continue perform effortlessly, definitely recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reliability. 29 Dec 2013
Style Name:FFP
I have three of these drives running 24 hours a day in a ReadyNas NV+ RAID unit, and I've been very impressed with their reliability. They have each been running without failure or interruption (other than occasional moves) for almost 25,000 hours (that's just short of three years), and the in-built health monitoring shows the drives in great shape with no recorded ATA errors. This is despite several power cuts which have shut down the drives instantly.

I have been very impressed with these drives, and plan to expand my network storage using them in the near future. Great stuff!

EDIT - Just under one month later.....

....and the most recent of my three 2TB WD Caviar Green drives began making my NAS unstable, with a SMART health multi-zone error rate of >110,000. I immediately regretted posting the review above - talk about tempting fate! To WD's credit, a replacement arrived two days later and is installed and working now. Their RMA process was pretty simple, and if you provide credit card details they'll forward you a new replacement and give you 30 days to return the broken drive, which is by far the best RMA service I've ever had to use. Still recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent drives but they need setting up first 28 Dec 2013
By Mr. Richard Pearn TOP 500 REVIEWER
Style Name:WD Extended Warranty|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Western digital 2.0 TB Caviar Green hard drives.

What is it ?

This is a bare 2 TB hard drive from Western Digital (WD). It is from their green series of hard drives meaning it consumes low power and is low noise without losing too much performance.
Typical uses are in small server setups and backup drives where the user's needs a secure back up copy. My use is for archiving photos, music collection and videos.

What you get.

The drive is delivered in a simple box with the drive inside an anti-static bag. The box also contains details of the Western Digital extended care warranty. To activate this extra year of warrantee you need to register the drive using the code with WD in the leaflet.

Using the drive as a storage device.

This can be mounted inside an existing computer case, NAS server or fixed into a potable SATA external drive housing. The drive is supplied uninitialized or formatted. To get your system to see it you need to register it in Windows. To do this open the control panel, choose Administrative tools, Computer Management, Disk management and then initialise, format and give the drive a letter for it to appear in the My Computer listing. This is for Windows 7.
Many people have reported these as DOA's but have failed to initialize and format the disk first so don't be put off.

Using the drive for a new Windows installation.

You can also let a new Windows installation detect and set up the drive partitions for you if you are using this as a system drive. Windows 7 and 8 set up DVD,s automatically detect this drive and set it up.

Once initialised it can be used to store files like any other disk drive.

Performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Green for go... 7 Mar 2014
By techpuppy TOP 50 REVIEWER
Style Name:WD Express Warranty|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When my LaCie external drive finally gave up I really didn't want to throw away the drive housing, which was fine, so got this WD Green hard-drive to eventually become the new occupant. To start with I've been using it in an Inateck Docking Station, which has been interesting because I can hear and feel how noisy and warm the drive actually gets in use without the insulation of an external case. So I can report the spinning sound from the Caviar Green is virtually inaudible, you're hardly aware it's even running. However the familiar crunchy clicking noise the heads make as they flick back and forth is much more noticeable, though not really loud, and will remain slightly audible inside most cases. The heat generated by the drive is minimal too, I had mine running constantly for hours (zeroing out data) and it became warm but never hot. Of course, ongoing running temperature will be very influenced by the kind of enclosure it's fitted into but the drive seems to be fairly well-suited for fan-less conductive cases.

Speeds are really good, I was getting up to 140MB/s through a USB-3 connection, especially for sustained throughput. In order to save power the Green drives park their heads whenever possible, so maybe they aren't the fastest out of the gate but once they hit open road they're excellent. At first glance the WD Green range sounds like a good fit for small NAS servers, especially with low-power consumption and good speeds, but it's worth noting that isn't the job they're intended for and there may be problems if they're used that way. The main use for the Green range is as secondary drives, such as external drives or media storage drives that don't require constant access.
