      I've purchased this with the Drobo to backup my PC and photos. I have the 4 slot drives Drobo system in which 2 of the drive is running the 1TB Caviar Green SATA. It runs very quiet and smooth. I'm planning on buying 2 more to complete the remaining two slots. I like the fact that the drives are very quiet with my Drobo and energy saving.

      Nice drive when it works. I am trying it in a PowerMac dual G5, which has 2 hard drive bays.
      Sometimes the OS finds it, sometimes it doesn't.
      Either drive bay. The other hard drive in the system works OK in either location. Once I can get it recognized again, I will wipe it and return it.

                  I've been using these hard drives for long term backup storage for 4 years now without any failures. And prices have begun to drop again after those nasty Thailand floods knocked out the manufacturers a couple years ago, so that's good.

                    I bought two of these hard drives fro a Guardian Maximus raid enclosure. All went very well on installation. Seems like a great deal to me. The only reason I hesitate giving it 5 stars is that I can't speak to the life span, but so far so good.

                                    I have been using Western Digital drives for years and have only ever had one issue which they replaced right away. Green for storage and Black for performance, you can't go wrong! Great drive!

                                            Drive arrived in a timely manner, but proved unusable for me. The description failed to mention that this drive does not have the traditional power connector, only the newer style SATA power connector.

                                                    I've purchased this with the Drobo to backup my PC and photos. I have the 4 slot drives Drobo system in which 2 of the drive is running the 1TB Caviar Green SATA. It runs very quiet and smooth. I'm planning on buying 2 more to complete the remaining two slots. I like the fact that the drives are very quiet with my Drobo and energy saving.

                                                      [...] I Installed the drive in my iMac the same day it arrived. Too soon to comment on reliability but it is reasonably quiet and I have not noticed any particular performance problems.
