5TB GDrive USB Weird Noises


#1

Hi,

So I got the 5TB GDrive USB from BH. They seem to be the only one that carry that specific model(s)… See my earlier post here: 5TB GDrive USB BHPhotoVideo Exclusive Product? How to tell which Model number?

One thing that is a bit weird about the 5TB version is that it makes loud noises: https://youtu.be/tH3CLTGQECk

Those noises are from the 5TB GDRIVE USB when it was BRAND NEW. I returned it to BH and got a replacement… same noises. It worked just fine but have no idea if I should be concerned. I ordered another 5TB GDRIVE USB since it was on sale and I simply couldn’t pass it up and the same issue… same noises.

I have two 4TB GDrive USB and they do not make these noises. What would be the explanation of the loud noises in the video from the 5TB that I do no hear from the 4TB? Is this normal? Should I be concerned? Is it a defect of some sort?

Anyone else having this with either the 5TB or any other size of the GDRIVE USB? Or even perhaps the Thunderbolt version? or the USB-C version?

Thanks.
