New Scorpio black 500gb - noise and vibration

Hi, just put this drive in my laptop and just wanted to know if its operation is normal?

At first I thought the cpu fan was stuck at 100% or something because thats what it sounds like, also the location of the drive is at the front of the laptop and when your typing you can feel quite strong vibration?

Works fine otherwise…

Hi Ian_Mack, welcome to the WD Community. If you want to make sure that the drive is working fine try running a DLG test.
