According to WD, they are meant to be used in NAS in 24/7 environment. Reportedly, the only difference compared to green is the firmware. I have 6 of these since January and I have not had any problems.
I got my DS1812+ at the end of March from Newegg for $880. So if you compare that deal to this, those drives are costing you $105 each. Which is still good, but those 2TB Reds have been for sale for $100 before.
Considering that the $880 deal was amazing, this is still a good deal if you need it now and are ok with 2TB drives.
