Tell that to my WD Green drive which even has 64mb cache... It can stutter sometimes, and when u try rewind or similar, it just stutters to hell , sometimes hard enough to cause VLC to crash, the search speed on the WD green is abyssmal, i cant describe how much i hate this drive, worst purchase ive done so far. Its only good for 1 thing, and 1 thing only: Storage. And no, there is nothing wrong with the drive, i've tested it and checked the smart values. My old Samsung F3 that died on me was waaaaaay faster.
