Summary: Quiet I think - meaning I don't ever remember any sound annoyances I've had with it. Personally, if you could use a steadfast 1TB 7,200 RPM HD - after 3 years, 2 months so far and my own eccentricity - I'm still waiting for this hard drive to finally say "I've had enough of this *%@&!
Pros: I've had this silly hard drive since Oct. of 2012. To be honest, with everything I've done with it - it actually blows my mind it still works perfectly. Countless reformats, wacko dual boot formats, 3 or more different MB transfers, multiple OSs. So I guess you could say I've tested it pretty wel...
Cons: The reason why it's a silly drive to me is because it's a 1 TB non-SSD hard drive. A person can get a TB thumb drive nowadays, - it's a small amount of space in my opinion for this type of hard drive. (can't remember the type right now? Platter? eh...) Regardless - I've been using it for an OS dr...
Pros: Ran perfectly fine with good stable write speeds and was fairly cheap as I caught it on sale for $45
Cons: bout a month and a half ago I started noticing my downloads taking way longer than normal. When observing the disk activity I noticed it was started to hang up on downloads as the write speed was jumping all over the map. maybe I just got a defective one, but had to knock off 2 eggs for the short...
Summary: I purchase mine from another website for about the same price. I am using it for more storage on my Directv DVR hr 24-200. Works absolutely flawlessly. I have now doubled my storage capacity. I am using an external enclosure by Roswell with a fan. I installed the hard drive in the enclosure.
Summary: Used in an Series 2 TiVo with and adapter. Pros: works inexpensive great capacity Cons: not free? Lets face it most end users aren't going to test transfer speeds etc. It works, is reliable, and designed for the task it does.
Summary: Works in my TIVO Series-3 DVR (after properly formatting) with some minor pauses every once in a while. Must have something to do with the larger memory buffer. Too soon to tell if it will last the usual 5 years, but the last one (older model) lasted 6 years.
Summary: Good Hard drive. Purchased to replaced the original HDD in my Samsung DVR Security System. The original was a Seagate and lasted about two years. Having a lot more faith in Western Digital Products I suspect this unit will outlast its predecessor.
