  Worked adequately for 2+ years,  2012-09-04
By Steve

As someone else noted, the "Green" has to do with powering down the drive motor when not in use. This does save power, but there are a lot of events besides backup that cause it to have to power up (like putting up a new finder window, and many file dialogs), and nothing happens while it powers up. It's an annoyance, not a show-stopper. It is not terribly fast, but for Time Machine, who cares.

Mine has run for 2 years, 6 months, is now out of warranty, and is getting flakey. It goes offline randomly, whether actively being used at the moment or not, and has shut down during a backup one time. I've inserted and removed the cable connectors a few times in case there's a problem with connectivity, but bottom line is that I can't trust it to save data, so it's going to get replaced. I'm hoping that it's the enclosure, not the drive, so I can get my old backups off of it and onto the new drive. Curse me as a carbon criminal, but the next one will be "low-power" but not "Green" as implemented by this drive.
