A great balance between speed and noise

 

This drive has a very nice balance of speed and noise. Being a 5900RPM drive it is not at all slow, in fact its much faster than 5400RPM drive.

A Bit Temperamental - Died After Only 3 Months!

 

Product worked pretty well for three months with no issues, then last week it delivered the unwelcome "click of death" on power-up. Everything on the disk was therefore lost. I use a mirrored back-up system, so even though all the data on the disk was...

Same point as the 1TB version

 

First of all I'll get the good points out of the way first, the good points being that the drive is a Western Digital and always found them to be reliable for up to 10 years before they usually die quietly (based on experience with a WD 40GB Caviar...
