Green failure rates was high in the first few drives, it is pretty much ok now.
I had 2 greens fail within 2 years thou i have 6 in total.
But 1 was just bad sector and the other was totally dead. (Used it in my Drobo, so nothing was lost)
i would still recommend WD, if you want something green and reliable you can get WD Green AV-GP.
1. Temp (Cooler when compared to other drives)
2. 5 years warranty (That's for my country, the rest are usually 3 years) [Played a really huge factor as disks are easily dead nowadays]
Now that WD has bought over Hitachi's Storage manufacture, who knows what will happen in the future.
