Re: WD green drives stink

My HDDs will be used for storage only. I wonder if most of the trouble from the Greens is by people that use them also for OS and apps or for transferring large amounts of data i.e.  downloading and transferring videos and movies.

I plan only to store my RAW files....and I'm just a hobbyist without time constraints of a wedding professional.

It seems to me that for storgae disks that wont be accessed often the greens make sense. They are cool and quiet most of the time.

I probably will get one fast Seagate that I will upload my RAWs to and use a green for backup (with external backup as well).
