Only potential issue is TLER...and for data storage duties (ie non OS drive) its pretty much a minor, minor issue bordering on non-issue.
I just had 2 green drives drop out of a raid array because of the lack of TLER, they still pass a full diag, but it's a pain having to clear errors in a ZFS pool. I replaced them with 3tb red's, and the other drives went into a degraded status on me during the rebuild. this is the second time that's happened.

if your building any kind of raid, get a drive with TLER. I've swapped out 3 drives so far for that reason, 3 more to go
