The vaunted blue drive. The generous 2 year warranty gives you some insight into the reliability.

It is also odd that WD no longer measures MTBF

"We no longer measure the reliability of our hard drives using Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF). Our current drive reliability is measured using Component Design Life (CDL) and Annualized Failure Rate (AFR)."

Personally, I would shy away from drives that aren't rated for 24x7 usage or don't provide MTBF data or tell you what load the drive is designed to take. All of which they fully know and measure. How else would they compute or test the CDL. Or do they do testing using no methodology?
