Low energy, high performance - very happy!

Love this drive so far! Initial filesystem formatting took a while, but not had any problems with it since.
My total system (2x Quad-Core Xeon, 18GB RAM, 120GB SSD and 2TB WD Green drive) idles at about 60W draw, so I believe the drive is living up to it's "green" name. Also cannot say that I've actually heard the drive audibly spin yet, although my server system's fans are always on and might mask this, it definitely isn't reminiscent of some of the 7200 rpm drives I had in the past.

Only time will tell about the longevity of this product, but I am hopeful.
