Quiet, but died within 3 months.
on March 17, 2011
I bought my drive on January 4th, 2011. I installed it about two weeks later, after having enough time to handle the downtime for this.
March 17th, 2011, it's dead. I got a click-click-click deathwhine, and after rebooting, it just never came back.
WD is replacing it, but they're honoring the 3 year warranty from the creation date, not the purchase date; it was made in July, 2010, so I lost almost 6 months of my warranty.
This is the first WD I've had that's died, but due to the warranty policy I will likely not purchase another unless they change warranty date to registration date.
