Both 1TB Caviar Green disks I've had didn't last as long as the two 500GB Seagate and 2TB Samsung drives I have, so, no, I'm not going to use Caviar Green drives for any prolonged usage.
The last one I had had delays on almost the entire disk.
No, it's not bad sectors, but still makes writing/reading data quite slow.
Personally, I won't use Caviar Green drives on a cramped enclosure; these drives just die after a year or so.
Probably too sensitive to high temperature; dunno really.
The enclosure I use is this one.
The last Caviar Green drive that died was used along with the Samsung and Seagate drives I stated above, and they're always on 24/7; replaced it with a 2TB Barracuda Green.
Anyway, good luck with those drives.
I certainly didn't have any luck with them. =/
