The 1TB HDD seems to be reliable. However, I would rather get the 1.5 TB version; although, not nearly as many people have done reviews of it. Do any of you have any experience with either of these drives?

Should I stick with the tried and true or go for the larger capacity?

Then get a cheaper green drive and/or go for the larger drive.

I noticed that the "Green" have a 2 year warranty where as the "Black" have a 5 year warranty. Wouldn't it be better to stick with the 5 year warranty?
