This thing is weirdly quiet. Like, doesn't make a peep. No vibration noise at all. Maybe it's just out-shadowed by the 2TB one, but still. A+ Drive.

Slow and noisy

Running good so far but WD has a good rep for consumer use drives.

This has been salvaged from my old Macbook Pro. It's an OK drive. Obviously if I didn't already have it, I would not buy it for a desktop system. It's exactly 2x slower than the other WD hard drive in this case.

I'm using it exclusively for automated file backups.

This slow HD (compared with the SSD HD9) will be set as a separate volume group for data storage and back up.

Quiet for my standards.

Music and video storage.

Decided to move to the smaller 2.5 drives since performance is on par with its 3.5 drives plus its small compact and eats less power. My new standard when it come to hard drives

Its a hard drive, it stores files and is okay at retrieving them, 5400rpm is not fast enough to keep up with current expectations of performance
