It's not nosier , it's the read/write sound. Normal hard disk seeking is like mechanical cranking sound but it's on whining sound.No cranking but coil whining when r/w
btw , I would like to ask about pro and cons on WD rainbow color type.Most website only mention their different but about the cons for the hard disk firmware , non of them mention.Whether it jump on seeking or less intelligent on firmware.
Take example , can a Purple surveillance WD use as storing media files vs WD Green as media storage ?
Maximun read/write TB for a specific hard disk and etc ? 1 day achieving 2TB r/w ? PCB board quality and etc.
Yes, surveillance and NAS hard disk is extreme reliable. All my 4 computers never use cheapo regular desktop hard disk, some of my hard disk already 10 years still strong. I now still raise fund to buy next Seagate Ironwolf HDD to my backup purpose for all my computers.
