Bought another one, this time from Western digital website, will update my experience, it was cheaper and free shipping with warranty!
Bought 2TB for a new server building and ran the S/N on WD website to check warranty and it says out of region, this is sole reason for negative review I left and has nothing to do with the drive's performance, would have not left it if was disclose in title.(Crystal disk image belong to other HDD mentioned above not the new 2TB purchased.)
This drive also runs extremely cool. Unlike my WD Black drives, which are very HOT to the touch, these Gold drives even when being written too 100% of the time run very cool. I dumped nearly 9TB onto this drive in one fell swoop and the drive never exceeded 100°F and under normal heavy usage runs at 95°F and at idle about 90°F. This is in a room with a constant ambient temp of 77°F.
I've used at least a hundred drives over the last decade. The first enterprise class drives I bought 10 years ago and which run at 10,000rpm have been running 24/7/365 and are still running to this day. These WD Gold drives have a MTBF 2.5 times higher than those early drives. I place a high value on reliability.
I'm sending it back for a refund. Thanks Amazon for your service, not so much for Viixim for selling it as new when it's not.
I tried LINUX MINT (based on UBUNTU)
I tried DEBIAN LINUX the original.
I installed LINUX MINT several times without as reported failure, including the GRUB install.
On reboot, nothing!
The boot sector or whatever data might have been written to it, runs right into the digital darkness of HDD space.
Some Grub part was written to the drive, but it is very useless since it produces an error "attempt to read or write outside of disk hd0" As far as I am concerned, all data during install had to go onto this drive, the only one. Why trying to read or write outside the drive e.g. air bubble or?
I wound up to take a 500GB from another computer that was running as slave. Installed the LINUX MINT without a single problem. The 1TB GOLD wound up as a slave in previous mentioned computer as storage.
It seems more and more to me, that some OS manufacturer pay hardware manufacturer to make it very difficult to get their hardware working with LINUX.
Sad, sad, almost like the white house.
With WD drives I feel much more secure, particularly with these, which are designed for heavy use in servers. If I ahve the time I will replace other drives made by (ahem) the other manufacturer with these.
Am I wrong, or should I avoid purchasing any computer or computer part with the word "gaming" in its name or in the advertising copy? I am not interested in playing games. I an interested in doing work and in having my data secure.

A bit noisy though - with audible clonking noises - not advised for where that might matter.
Ignore the poor review on here from the guy that doesn't understand the difference between raw and formatted capacity. For reference 14TB manufacturer raw measurement = 12.73TB formatted without any file system overhead.
You might get your files back if the main HDD goes down, but setting up a new OS with the grief that entails, means that a few extra quid spent on a more rugged HDD might pay off.
System image and bootable media will help and a regular diagnostic test like WD DataLife Guard helps.
As many have said before, with HDDs, it's not if they fail, but when
I decided running it as a secondary (D) drive was better for my setup. But now I have the APM issue again. So the drives is constantly laggy because it's always sleeping. It seems to be normal and WD is fully aware as others have the problem. Do a search for WD Gold constantly spinning down and unable to save APM setting.
EDIT 2: Decide 1 Star was a a little harsh. Despite the permanent sleep issue (which I have to run a program called Keep Alive HD...which does a great job) this really is a very reliable and quite drive. No need for SSD for my secondary drive...YET.
Also tried to login to Western Digital support portal to see if I can register this hard disk. But Western Digital does not allow me login in as I am required to change my password. However the "Change Password" button does not redirect to anywhere at their website, without any error messages. It has been over a week now, and the case has been escalated to lever 2 support twice. Still not fixed.
Vendeur tres pro (goldway) : Emballage très soigné bien adapté à un disque dur. Produit conforme, avec garantie WD de 5 ans (validé par WD /enregistrement) HDD Expédition le jour même, en Chronopost.+Suivi. Recu le lendemain.
Sono molto veloci con punte di circa 215Mbyte/s e abbastanza rumorosi.
Se il vostro prerequisito è la silenziosità andate sui Seagate Exos che possiedo e che sono decisamente più silenziosi, mantenendo velocità simili a questo WD Gold.
La cosa più IMPORTANTE è che questi WD Gold sono in stato di EOL (end of life) quindi non sono più prodotti e andranno avanti sino ad esaurimento scorte.
Anche per questo motivo vi suggerisco i Seagate EXOS o gli HGST(prodotti dalla WD)
Per un disco identico, poco dopo l'acquisto si è verificato un errore SMART ed è stato sostituito dalla stessa Western Digital senza alcun problema e con uno nuovo.
P.S. sarebbe gradita una maggiore attenzione nell'imballo di questo tipo di oggetti non si puo' ricevere un Hard Disk di questo livello in una scatola dove sembra di avere al suo interno un sasso che rotola.
Infatti la sua busta originale era perfettamente sigillata e nuova avvolta da un leggero strato di pluriball che pero'
purtroppo fluttuava liberamente all'interno della scatola!
die Lautstärke meines gesamten Systems hat sich von 40 dB (mit 2 HDDs) auf 50dB (1x WD Gold, die anderen beiden Platten ersetzt) erhöht. die 20 dB aus dem spec sheet sind, nie und nimmer erreicht.
Um eine Erhöhung von 40dB auf 50 dB zu verursachen muss die platte ziemlich genau 50dB laut sein, was einfach dem 2,5 fachen der angegebenen Lautstärke entspricht.
Ich denke ich habe eine Montagsplatte erwischt, denn auch die emitierte Vibration lässt den gesamten Tisch, Boden und PC Gehäuse mit vibrieren.
Starke performance aber einfach zu laut, lasse gerade einen Test laufen um nach defekten zu schauen, sollte da nichts gefunden werden geht die Platte leider zurück.
