But, that's not even the main issue (although I suspect the excessive load cycles contribute to the drive problems with WD Green Models).  Sector Read errors inside of a year of use is the issue I've had with them, even though SMART data showed the firmware hadn't reallocated any bad sectors to spares (leaving them in a "pending reallocation" state instead.

IMO, that's horrible behavior, since users may not realize their disk drive is what's causing their issues until they lose important data.

Example (SMART info from the last one I had problems with after only 233 days of power on time).   It had not reallocated any sectors to spares (leaving 64 of them in  "pending reallocation" state), and couldn't even get past 10% of short self tests without read failures:
