No, don't avoid them!

WD currently makes the best disk drives available. I will be happy to trade my 1TB Seagate 7200.11 for a WD Caviar Black 1TB -- and I'll pay the postage.

My WD My Book Studio is a fantastic drive for Time Machine backups, which is how I use it. That it spins down is a great thing. It keeps noise and heat down and saves wear and tear on the drive.

If you want a bootable backup, then get a bare WD Caviar Black SATA drive, put it into a drive sled, and slide it into position 2, 3, or 4.

If you don't have a Mac Pro, I don't care, because apparently we are supposed to make blanket recommendations to buy/avoid products without considering that someone else might have totally different needs than ours. ;)
