    There are a few different versions of this drive with slightly different geometries (a few more or a few less sectors) and different buffer memory.

    This is the OEM version which is usually supplied in an anti-static sleeve and sold in bulk to computer builders. As such, it will not have the normal retail packaging, fixing screws or the information leaflet. You can buy the screws in packs of about 100 quite cheaply or you may be able to beg a few from anyone who builds or repairs computers. Functionally, there is no other difference between OEM and retail versions. The OEM version tends to be slightly less expensive.

    As it does not have the normal protection that the retail pack would normally provide and it has been known for some sellers to do rather stupid things when despatching OEM drives. If you should be a victim to one of these sellers, and purchased via Amazon, I would suggest that you return the drive for refund, purchase from a supplier with more understanding of the product and complain to Amazon!

    The distinguishing feature of the Caviar Green series is that the motor speed is not constant. In normal use when writing or reading, it will operate at it maximum rotational speed but when inactive, the motor will slow. This will save a proportion of it its normal wattage. It does mean that the drive needs a moment to reach maximum speed from a lower one.

    The drive I received is WD20EARX-00AZ6B0 manufactured in Sep 2011.

    It is officially the replacement for the WD20EARS. However the drive I received is significantly slower than my existing WD20EARS. Average read speed is 84MB/s according to HD Tune, compared to 106MB/s on my WD20EARS. 22MB/s, big difference!

    I was also disappointed to note that it has 4x500GB platters. This is old technology, Western Digital introduced 667GB platters over 1 year ago.

    You should care about this because with 667GB per platter you only need 3 platters for a 2TB drive, hence they have less components and are more reliable. Also higher density platters generally have better sequential performance (assuming the rotational speed is the same). Finally, less spinning mass = less vibration and less power consumption.

    I think it is very cheeky of WD to release a brand new, more expensive replacement for the WD20EARS, make a big deal about the 6Gb/s interface, and then use OLD components and a SLOWER drive. In fact I believe they shipped 3-platter versions of the WD20EARX as review units because I have seen pics of WD20EARX on review sites that do not look like mine.

    I ordered 2 of these to install in a D-Link NAS in Raid 1 config.
    However, I was dismayed to receive them in nothing more that a thin cardboard sleeve.
    I simply couldn’t believe they used a thin cardboard sleeve to send such fragile components.

    Although they both appeared undamaged externally, it remains to be seen if they function correctly once installed.

    I did leave a ‘frank’ feedback message to Amazon.
