I just bought three Passport SE 1tb USB 3.0 hard drives. All three seem to operate fine but two have a distinct vibration and one has none at all. Even when copying large files the one is almost as still as a stone while even when idling the other two have a staedy vibration.
Should I be worried about this? Are there newer versions of the same drive that have eliminated vibration? I’d rather have no vibration at all but maybe it is a bad sign that one has no vibration. I’d love to hear if anyone else has noticed this or knows if one or the other is a problem.
