how?

Good price and my WD's which have been in regular use for 10+ years are still running strong. I wouldn't put a Green in a desktop if its used for gaming or any laborious disk I/O work, but nice and cheap as a backup or the like.

how?


Go to flubit.com, paste the amazon URL into the flubit homepage, complete the registration and wait for them to email a better price. Might take an extra week or so now with the holiday shut down fast approaching.

Desktop PC + Green HD = Performance < Vista.
Just saying...
Good price, though.

"150MBytes/s host to/from drive (sustained) data transfer rate"
That's good. only issue is for £15 more you could get 2tb

I believe that 'sustained data transfer rates' don't mean much when doing lots of random small(ish) seeks/reads, which is typical of how the disk would be accessed by the OS when loading programs, saving documents, getting pages out of a web browser cache, etc.
I'm really not dissing the deal, but my friend had this very drive in a brand new mid-power desktop running Win 7 and it performed like a dog. I got him a WD Black, cloned the Green onto it and it now flies.

are any drives good at random reads and writes though?

I have 2x 2TB WD Green Caviar drives on my machine and use one for media storage (HD film) and back ups. Paid £80 back a few years and they still work beautifully today.
Good buy, heat added.

I wouldn't use for OS or even as primary HDD but as a low power drive for media etc, hard to beat.
