I...just wouldn't. It looks like a deal compared to where HDD prices have been, but I have little good to say about Green drives. I'd much rather folks look at $10 2TB Red drives
for storage needs. Yeah they advertise that they're built for NAS boxes, but that makes them that much better for any storage drive in a desktop or home server.
The green drives just stall a lot
. Any DirectTV user can see this too as you have an early 500G green drive in your latest DVR. The bigger drives got even more hit and miss in PC builds and I haven't found an actual model number I could suggest. The red though...indeed.
