    Cheap, but I wouldn't use in a NAS. Get a Red drive if you are putting it into a NAS.

    Agree. I wouldn't bother with the Green line, even without the NAS.
    Too much negative feedback on this line. High rate of failure.

    Green vs Red, sounds like traffic light.

    Would there really be any good brand drive line with this size that would stable for a long time? I think the failure rate on a drive that is over 2TB would be greater. Just personally I have lost a lot of information due to just wanting more space. Any recommendations?

    #4 maybe this as a good alternative?

    2TB seems to be a sweet spot for many applications, like DVRs in surveillance systems.

    I'd place better bets on this one. Hits 90-100Mb/s transfer. It's no OS drive, but that's more than fast enough to use as a NAS/network storage.

    Enterprise drives are built better, but cost so much more that you're better off just buying WD or Seagate at the lowest price, a model with no more than 2 platters in it to decrease heat and wear, then either doing a RAID1 or offline backup. for redundancy.

    Don't try to just buy one super-duper drive hoping for no data loss. Every make and model has a certain % failure rate.

    Well, besides only having two platters, having the green drives that only spin at 5400-5900 rpm significantly increase lifespan too.

    Pity that Samsung got out of the HD business. I have a couple 2TBs of theirs and they're fantastic.
