Green series are ecocrap. They die in a year.

I've been running two of these for almost 2 1/2 years now.

That's nonsense.

I have 8 x 1TB, 4 x 2TB and 2x4TB WD green drives, from 2007, last one I bought was in 2012. Worked flawlessly in my servers and NAS.

I'll be buying another 4 at £99 each.

Western Digital after sales isn't what it was. FAR worse than Seagate. can't say worse than that.
Just had a LOAD of trouble with an eastern european who wasn't (to say the least) helpful with a drive that just died

Well that is wrong, WD are still the market leader for hard disks and sell more than Seagate. WD revenue is also higher. Seagate make a tiny bit more profit per drive than WD though

green drives are rubbish though. good way to slow your pc down, better off with a WD Red or WD Black or maybe a Seagate 7200 drive

Yeah cos that extra 1800rpm will really make a difference when opening/ saving a file.

It's not nonsense...for eco reasons (green) they didn't use lead, so the corrosion is welcome. I'm using many different disks in our servers, so I have experience which disks last and which not.

I was talking about after sales, NOT just sales.
WD used to be brilliant. They're about as far from "brilliant" as it could be, NOW
I'm also well aware (as are most people) about 7200 being best. SSD are even better, too
Greens are mainly used as storage anyway

My 4 arrived today and upon checking the warranty on WD's site they all expire in August next year! They have a manufacture date of Jul 2014 so guess they actually have 2 years warranty which is what oem drives come with according to their site.

Have emailed broadband buyer.
