That said, it is definitely worth noting that this drive is much, much louder than not just any one of my old hard drives, but all of my old drives put together running at the same time. All of the drives are mounted in the same metal drive bays that have minimal rubber grommets to help 'reduce vibration'. This drive makes audible clicking and whirring noises when it is in use. Audible over 10 fans running in the computer and with the case roughly 8 feet away from my chair. The older drives you could very faintly hear when they first spin up from being powered down, but then couldn't hear them at all once they were spinning. It might just be that I got a loud one, but otherwise, I just can't imagine having 4+ of these things running in a RAID/NAS unless it's in a different room.
After the initial experience I may say that I like this drive, it is SILENT which bring assurance of no issues. I recommend it if you are in the market for one.
Write speed (measured as writing 4*10^9 bytes of data - time sh -c 'cat /dev/zero | head -c 4000000000 > /opt/media/horace/1.raw' where /opt/media/horace is the mountpoint, disk formatted as ext4):
Read speed (measured as calculating MD5 sum of that file created above - time md5sum /opt/media/horace/1.raw):
For comparison, the below numbers are taken using same measurement approach for my 2.5'' Samsung EVO SSD installed on the same server:
Write speed: 0m14.646s
Read speed: 0m8.785s
The noise level is also surprisingly low, overall, I'm satisfied with this purchase.
These were pricey ($400 apiece when I bought them), but since my NAS only has 4 slots, I wanted to maximize the capacity per slot, and these were the largest drives I could find at the time.
