WD Caviar Green – Cool, quiet.
As hard drive capacities increase, the power required to run those drives increases as well. WD Caviar Green drives make it possible for energy-conscious customers to build systems with higher capacities and the right balance of system performance, ensured reliability, and energy conservation.
Reduced power consumption - WD has reduced power consumption by up to 40 percent compared to standard desktop drives with the combination of WD's IntelliSeek, NoTouch, and IntelliPower technologies.
Helps enable PCs - WD Caviar Green drives yield an average drive power savings of 4-5 watts over standard desktop drives making it possible for our energy-conscious customers to build systems with higher capacities and the right balance of system performance, ensured reliability, and energy conservation.
Cool and quiet - WD GreenPower Technology™ yields lower operating temperatures for increased reliability and low acoustics for ultra-quiet PCs and external drives.
Massive capacity - Capacities up to 2 TB offer the most available capacity for storage-intensive programs and space-hungry operating systems, like Windows Vista®, with plenty of room left over for photos, music, and video.
Perfect for external drives - External drive manufacturers can eliminate the need for a fan in a high-capacity product with a WD Caviar Green drive, the coolest and quietest in its class.
IntelliPower - A fine-tuned balance of spin speed, transfer rate and caching algorithms designed to deliver both significant power savings and solid performance.
IntelliSeek - Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise, and vibration.
NoTouch ramp load technology - The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.
Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) - Employs PMR technology to achieve even greater areal density.
StableTrac™ - The motor shaft is secured at both ends to reduce system-induced vibration and stabilize platters for accurate tracking, during read and write operations. (2 TB models only)
Low power spin-up - WD Caviar Green drives consume less current during startup allowing lower peak loads.
Advanced power technology - Electronic components deliver best-in-class low power consumption for reduced power requirements and increased reliability.

UPDATE: Months later, and the drive is still purring, and used daily as a network drive for all the computers in the house. I just purchased another one to RAID1 with it.
The key fact here is that heat kills hard drives more than anything else. Therefore, buy a harddrive that reduces heat. Ergo, buy a green drive. Drives that use less electricity when in use and generally spin lower produce less heat. If you can accept the relatively modest dip in performance for reliability over the long run, then a green drive is your best bet.
I currently have two, both purchased from Amazon. No problems yet, but there is a modest decline in performance compared to my Seagate drives, but my Seagate drives tend to die faster then any other. Again, Heat Kills Hard Drives.
To further reinforce this, I have Speedfan running to monitor temperatures. My Green drives on load clock in around 40 degrees Celsius often dropping to high 20s, low 30s idling. As I type this, they are at 30 degrees. Now, my Western Digital 160, non-green drive is running at 40 C idle often pushing high 40s to mid 50s on load.
I don't demand extreme speed from my hard drives and I feel that losing a hard drive is a colossal pain in the butt (RAID 1 is an alternative, but replacing drives sucks period regardless of mirroring). Therefore, I'm exclusively going with green drives now.
To sum it up:
Low Heat = Longer Hard Drive Life
I have been a WD user for a long time and respect the Brand as one of the best in the marketplace to date. Sure, every hard drive has the possibility of failure and that is all dependent on how you use them and what you do with them. I have recently started purchasing these by the case load for my office and below you will see what we are using them for.
I maintain a rather large data center for an enterprise. We were burning through LTO tapes for backup and archive...most LTO's hold 200gb/400gb compressed and or 400/800compressed [...]. A WD drive costs about $100 for 1tb. The choice is obvious....since compression doesnt yield much on a tape. We proceeded to buy some ESATA docks (example: Thermaltake BlacX eSATA Hard Drive USB Docking Station and use these drives on our servers to run nightly backups. Not only is the speed twice as fast over sata, we also always get great backups. You will need ESATA cards that can go in servers or your computer...unless you have esata ports. (example: 2PORT RAID5 Esata Pci 3GBPS External Express Card.
My main project was to backup my exchange 2007 server every night on to a hard drive and then store one hard drive weekly off-site. These drives work perfectly for that purpose via a dock and the solution is supported by popular backup programs such as Veritas Backup Exec. We also purchased hard drive storage cases...for a bit of added protection. Example: DriveBox 10 pack
Hard drive backups are now becoming the NORM due to the prices that hard drives are available for. The WD drives are exceptional due to a very very low failure rate. The reason for my story above was to prove that I actually do have faith in this product and use it for enterprise backup purposes.
