Passport SE 1tb vibration


#1

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.

Thanks.

I would be concerned and take them back where you bought them.

So they shouldn’t really vibrate at all?  Thanks for your feedback.

None of mine vibrate there is just enough to tell they are on. Since one is smooth and the other 2 vibrate I’d be concerned about potentilal problem in future and  exchange them.
