Summary: The hard drive itself works fine, its the noise that is the problem. It sounds like paper rubbing on a turned on fan. Its very loud with trying to access the hard drive files, or when its writing something into its drive. However, I've been using it for almost a year and it has not died out.

Summary: BackBlaze rated this hard drive as one of the most reliable they have ever used (having used 4600+ over 4+ years), with an annual failure rate of only 1.6%. Performance is as expected for a 7.2K rpm, SATA 2 drive. I measured 127 IOPS for 64K reads.
Summary: I got this drive for around $60 on sale of I remember correctly. No complaints what so ever about the drive. I have it running in RAID 1 with another 2TB drive and it has not shown any signs of failure yet. The write speed is decent. Not the best but I've certainly had worse.
