Default New hard drive

Surprisingly, one of my 1TB drives is filling up fast. I need to get another one. I'm currently looking into getting this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136792

What do you guys think?

Whatever you do, don't grab a WD Green drive. Complete and utter garbage.

Nice, but reports of it being loud. I have one in my HTPC and I often hear read/writes across the room. Good performer, but I'd buy a Samsung if I had to do it over again.

Just bought a 2 TB WD Green drive today from Amazon. It's just going to be turned on once a month for a backup and it was the cheapest I could find. Without exerting any effort.
