A fast hard drive, but the noise it makes gets me paranoid.
on 20 July 2012
UPDATE - Hard Drive broke on me back in 2014, I would strongly suggest avoiding this hard drive and get the WD10EZEX model instead.
After having no computer for an entire month and a half due to it breaking down on me, I had to go through all the trouble to return every piece of hardware inside my system until I finally find out it was the motherboard causing my PC to not work.
I got this hard drive as a replacement for my Hatachi 500gb hard drive and even though the hard drive is fast and has a lot of space inside it, there is a flaw, the noise. This is by far the most loudest hard drive I've ever owned and using it makes me very paranoid because of it, when I run a game, every now and again they'll be a faint whining noise and I fear that the hard drive might one day explode on me just after having it for well over a week. There have been no performance issues as of yet and it does the job well and compared to my older hard drive there is a difference in loading times and over all just using the computer, it feels faster and more fluid.
Over all, this is a good, affordable hard drive, but I must warn you if you're looking for a hard drive that's quiet, you might won't to not consider this hard drive.
