Summary: I wish Amazon would STOP POSTING REVIEWS FOR THE WRONG ITEM!!!!!!! All the top "most helpful" reviews listed here are for other models of Hard Drives and NOT the specific one being sold by this listing that I'm interested in !!! There are 2 models for this size and I want to know what the difference is but it is so much harder trying to see if that's addressed when I have to wade through a bunch of reviews to try to sift out relevant reviews that might mention that!
Summary: the noise doesn't really bother me because it's not really loud, and ill never have to worry about space again. I'm just a gamer and I've never been too concerned with HDD's but if it helps my Magician software for my SSD says this HDD's stats are
Pros: Works as advertised
Cons: makes more noise than my 500GB WD, which was silent. this thing you will hear spinning
Summary: I have three choices in mounting the drive so I am sure I can fit it in permanently. So far I have been using it in a plug in Icy Dock Hot Swap Backplane which does not use any screws so I cannot speak about the mounting hole issue directly.
Pros: Super large capacity, pretty fast transfer rates and a reasonable price. And so far it has been very reliable, extremely quiet and vibration free.
Cons: Heavier than most drives. Missing middle mounting hole and reports of other two being off making mounting a possible issue
Summary: I have always liked Western Digital drives over other manufactures and this drive is no exception. Very reliable, easy installation, very pleased with performance. Using as large backup drive for system. Working great.
