Recieved a faulty hard drive, as well as the wrong size.

Summary: I ordered a 3TB harddrive, I recieved a 2TB, that after less than five months has gone bad. It's making a deep grinding noise. It started off making some noise, but I needed it for work, and assumed the issue wouldn't get worse. It now sounds like a power saw inside my PC.
Excerpt: As always, I am never disappointed with WD black hard drives, they cost a little more but it is worth it for the performance and reliability. A good indication is the 5 year warranty, no hard drive maker would give a warranty like this unless they had drives that have that level of reliability.
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable, Uses The Word Black
Summary: Worked for 2 days, after I went away for a few weeks to work a contract, came back drive had issues spinning up. I am now RMAing it. Hopefully to recieve a new drive. The sata port seemed weak, and the plastic does not properly secure cable.
Summary: Almost had this one year and it has been doing great. I've had zero problems with this. I use this as a drive to install most of my space hungry PC games. Do not use this as a primary drive because this beast can make some noise when under load.
