I’ve been through two units now. The first was somewhat noisy. You could hear the fan from about 5 feet away. The noise is mostly the fan vibrating the case. Of course if the HD spins up…then it’s louder.
Now the latest unit I got, is even worse. I can hear the fan from 10 feet away as it vibrates the case. This one is as loud as a single fan Desktop with a noisy HD. (Thank God for NewEgg and their return policy)
If it wasn’t under warranty, I’d rip the case off and do things right. So far, the noise is a deal breaker and the WD Hub’s Achillies Heel. I really like the unit, great features, but I hate the noise.
Does anyone have a fairly quiet “Hub” ? Is there hope ?
