WD2003FYYS (RE4) Annoying high pitch sound

[ Edited ]

One of my WD2003FYYS (I have 2) is making a really annoying high pitched sound when it's running.

 

I don't think this is normal, should I get it replaced?

 

It's really distracting me and giving me a headache.

If it just started making that noise, then I would definitely get the data you need off that drive, and get it replaced.

It made this noise from the start.

 

I got it replaced and the new one made the same annoying noise.

I'm pretty sure there is a problem with these drives.

 

I'm now at a point to completely drop raid and just buy the black editions or even blue and put my data on those.

I'm paying a premium price for those drives. I expect them to be flawless
