WD Green drives aren't so bad!
damarrin commented on 25 February 2020 at 6:15 pm UTC

I have a WD Green that came in an external case and developed some bad sectors, so I replaced it with another one and use this one as a random drive for various computers to test OSs and stuff. No more bad sectors since some years ago and it works fine, but is very slow.

I have a bunch of WD Reds that have been going on forever in a server and I’m more than happy with them, just the kind of storage you want in a 24/7 solution.

I’m not fond of Seagate drives because all the ones I’ve had were very noisy. No complaints about reliability though.

awww my wd10ears started to fail on me
everything looks pretty normal except Multi_Zone_Error_Rate but I guess it was corrected because it went from 197 to 200 again.
💪🏼

I don't get the the value "Temperature_Celsius" 105 I suppose the correct value is the RAW_VALUE which is 42.

@BlackBloodRum looking again at your values you have very low Power_Cycle_Count are those disks used in servers??
