    WDC drives, caviars vs re

    I was just wondering whats the real live experience or difference on using Western Digital Caviar series (green, blue or black) on a DC environment vs the RE which are suppose to be for enterprise business.

    On the WDC website the caviar series are targeted under desktop disks not servers. But allot of servers and providers use them. If you have servers your suppose to use the RE series, I exclude raptors as I only want to compare medium performance disks here.

    We've tried the blue one and I saw some of them (in this case 500GB) failed. So far, we do not have any issue with the green one or the RE version yet. In general, WD is a good drive.
