Capable drive but loud
This was purchased at the price £238.78. Drive came the next day which I was not expecting. The drive was bought to consolidate two 4TB external drives into one internal drive.
Upon installation everything worked fine, drive was mounted and formatted. I noticed a small audible increase coming from my case. More than I would have expected from the drive not actually doing anything.
I began to transfer my 2x4TB external drives to this new drive. The NOISE that came from this thing took me back to the 90's. You could hear the grind of 110 mb/s transfer speeds really making an impact on the drive.
I tried to console myself and say once the transfer is done it wont be like this forever. I was kinda right. The passive hum and general low usage of this drive was still audible and NOT what i was expecting or wanting.
The 2 external drives were next to silent, maybe I was expecting too much or maybe my 'drive' to get the best price was a compromise in my audible experience with the drive.
Ease of use
Value for money
