I wanted extra storage for music, pictures, movies, books, etc. That's what the WD Green is for. Inexpensive and big, perfect for mass storage. The WD Blue is for everything else. I admit, four drives might be a little overdoing it, but each fulfills a certain role and they have been working out fantastically well for me.

I've had a lot of arguments of why buy a green. It works exactly as I need it to. Like all of the other color in WD's rainbow setup it has its place. No issues from this drive so far.

Cheap yet reliable mass storage. From what I've seen WD has great reliability and customer service. Usable storage of course was around 1870GB but that's normal.

Not much to say, not to old so didn't expect anything to go wrong, and nothing has. Not fast, but that is not what it is for. This drive is solely for mass storage and does that fine. Wish it was 7200 RPM as I thought, but oh well. It is still fine for my application. Gets about 100 MB/s read and write.
