This is a Newegg.com ShellShocker so it has a short windows for today, April 29th, 2013.

Western Digital WD Green WD20EZRX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

 

It's green, or Intellipower so it will not work well with any type of RAID storage system.  I'm not sure about StableBit type add-ins.  It would do great as a backup drive or an "in-server" standalone drive.  Say, for PC backups, etc.

 

What do you think?

I've had 4 WD20EZRX's running in my EX-487 24/7 for a year and a half without an issue -- Stablebit Scanner continues to give them a clean bill of health -- no bad sectors and no SMART problems in all that time.  They make great backup drives too.  My son has had one in his HTPC going on 1.5 yrs also. 

 

I have two of it's bigger cousin's (30EZRX's) in a Storage Spaces Drive Pool  with a Mirror volume and Simple volume running on my Desktop since the 1st of the year with no problem.
