Question for anyone/everyone: compared to, say, a WD Green or Red, how loud are the WD VRs? Do they have much vibration?

Good point, there are a lot of these on ebay, you just need to be sure you know what you are getting.

The link you have listed is for 160GB Gen 4 SATA300 drives that were OEM to HP and Dell. These have Dell part numbers on them.

Because they are OEM, they do not have the five year warranty.

This is a good reference to identify VR drives;

Thats true, but if the drive is half the price you can just buy another if it fails. Then you would get it back quicker than RMA'ing it, and you get to keep the old drive
