I'm looking for a good workhorse 3T internal hard drive and am considering the

Western Digital 3 TB SATA II Intellipower 64 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Desktop Hard Drive - WD30EZRSDTL as my choice. The drive, actually two of them, will be for use in a WHS 2011 box. I note this drive is generally well reviewed, but is not 7200 rpm. Your opinions please, will this drive do well for serving up movies, recorded tv, pictures, music, etc?

 

 

Thanks.

You will get both yay and nay responses. I've stopped buying WD Green drives because, IMHO, they develop bad clusters that have to be relocated more often than WD Blacks, or REx drives. Others in these forums swear by them.

The drive has very good performance and will do what you want in terms of servings. I tested one when they first came out and the performance is on par with a 2T Black Caviar.
