I have hard drives

Pros: Quiet, which is important because older WD Blacks had very noisy seeks

Cons: Just know that one half of the platters is basically unused so you won't get as much energy efficiency if all were being used >>6TB model

Other Thoughts: Not to be installed inside a laptop

Still the Gold Standard in Mechanical HDs

Pros: Fast and Reliable. I own 13 of the 5TB Versions. None have failed! They are about as fast as you will find at the consumer level.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: These are a bit more expensive, but that is why they are such good drives.

Manufacturer Response:
Hi Anonymous,

Thanks for the time providing feedback; it's always appreciated receiving input from our customers. Current drive technology dictates that some noise will occur during normal drive operation. The type and volume of noise is dependent on whether the is drive performing a read/write operation or idle with the heads parked. The environment where the drive is functioning may also influence noise. For example, loose drive mounts, fan noise from case ventilation or the power supply, even where the enclosure is placed or mounted may produce or enhance the noise heard. It is important to recognize which noises indicate trouble or normal drive operation. We have placed some links below for more information:

"How to check if a WD drive is damaged or defective"

If you found drive faulty and you are past their return policy, you can create an RMA through WD and replace the drive under warranty if necessary.

We would like to follow-up with you to help discover the root of your hard drive’s abnormal behavior, or help replace it for you if needed in order to provide a positive resolution to your experience

Pretty good speed for what I got it for.

Pros: I got this drive for only $150. That's pretty good for 4.5tb.
Speeds are alright (when the drive isn't full/almost full).

Cons: When the drive fills up, speeds lower by a lot. Transfers drop down to about 50mb ish. Done insane defragments and optimization to see if that will fix it, and it hasn't.
You only get 4.5tb.
Noisy.
