    Should I go for Western Digital Caviar Green WD20EARS?

    I am not having enough knowledge about the Western Digital Caviar Green WD20EARS which stores 2GB of data. Since, you members provide proper information about the hardware peripherals; I thought to post here to fetch some information from you all. Please tell me should I go for this hard-disk? Is there any drawback of it? I am having doubt on this hard-disk because it stores huge amount of data. So would be waste if I come to know about the problems after purchasing it. Hope that you will provide some information about it soon as possible.
