Disliked and noisy

Benoit P., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: We hear a clicking sound each 5 seconds which made me agressive when trying to work with the laptop.
  • Pros: Western Digital reliability, ease to install, also a good warranty. Relatively quick acces time for this kind of HDD.
  • Cons: Slow overall performance even quick access time, my last Momentus thin was an older version and was quicker with an average of 20mb/sec more. Only 8mb of cache and it's obvious when working hard a bit. Seems to be one of the two platers and electronic board from older 1tb scorpio... Felt exactly like that.
