I've got a 1.5TB Western Digital Green drive, and I'm not happy with the
performance of it.  There are also several discussions online about
these drives having an early ageing problem with ext4 filesystems
because of them unloading the heads every 5 seconds and ext4 only
flushing its journal every 30 seconds.

Other than this one negative, I suspect than any other drive will do
well for the first 5 years or so.  Linux is much easier on the drive
than Redmond's products are.
