The drive is great! Tons of storage! Only negative is it makes some noticeable noise while it's being used. I have several external drives that are mostly silent. The drive is hooked up to my tv entertainment PC and is about 7 feet from my couch and the sound of it searching for files is clearly audible. For me though it's not a deal breaker
WD Red drives are my go-to NAS drives, due to their reasonable costs and incredible reliability. I bought two of these for my QNAP RAID box, so I'll know I'll get my money's worth out of these drives! :)
This drive is a little noisy during access, and it is not as fast as my solid state drive of course, but it is faster than my drive that just went bust and it offers a lot of storage for the money.
