Default Re: WD 2TB Black Question

The reliability is decent, better than Hitachis and some Seagates.

The WD Black 2TB - WD2001FASS noise is 29 dBA idle, 34dbA seeking (slight grinding noise)
Not too loud in a typical rig, unless you want to use it for an HTPC. The Green version is quieter, but generally slightly less reliable and obviously slower
