Should I use WD Red in Desktop
I was planning on getting the WD Green drive (Either 2TB or 3TB, not sure) for main storage.
But them there red drives - are they a better option? There's really not much difference in price and I've heard so much good about the red drives;
They're supposed to be running cooler, operate more quietly and be way more reliable. Also they come with a 3yr warranty compared to the 2yr on the green drive and I've read that red drives uses DDR2 memory, compared to DDR1 which the other drives uses...
The main question I got is, are there any drawbacks to choosing the red drive over the green? I haven't decided if I wanna set up a RAID config, but if I do, wouldn't the red drives be better, because of they're longer MTBF?
I heard that the red drives are much more compatible in NAS setups, but are they less compatible in a "regular PC"?

However, Seagate's latest Green Drive surprised us:
So, if you really want a "green" model, pick Seagate's solution.
I haven't reviewed any of the "red" models from Western Digital, so I don't have an opinion on them yet.
