Great solution for a backup drive in an enclosure. The Greens are slower than other drives, but if connected via usb and such you won't notice the difference. I have a 1TB Green and it runs very cool in my Vantec enclosure, which should help longevity. This 2TB drive might be the next one in there.

Wow! I cannot wait to see what the black edition is going to perform like. Looks like there is hope for my obsessive compulsive hoarding tendencies
