5.0 out of 5 stars decent cheap drive, 18 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: WD 1TB 3.5 inch Internal Hard Drive - Caviar Blue (Personal Computers)
im using this as a boot drive in a budget build and it does a good job, you cant use a wd green as boot its too slow, but if you want better speeds go with a wd black or an ssd

Of course you can use a WD Green as a boot drive. I have had 4 WD Green HDDs in my i5 Win 7 64-bit PC for the last 4 years. One of them obviously is the boot disk. I've just set up another PC for my son (Intel Quad Core 9400) with Win 7 64-bit on a WD Green HDD. I plan on doing the same when I re-set up my wife's computer next week. There's nothing wrong at all with WD Green HDDs.
While the Blue HDDs are good, the milliseconds you save aren't practically useful.

its not designed to be be ramping up constantly, they are at higher risk of failure like this. Also those computers must be seriously slow, and you've clearly never tried an SSD if you think speed of boot disk isnt important
