Q About New WD Caviar Black (WD1002FAEX)


I bought a new WD Caviar Black 1000 Gb / 7200 / 64 Mb / SATA / 3.5
on every read operation from the drive i heard it reading, for example when i run chrome
i used the Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for Windows utility and the drive pass the quick test
on the first 15 Sec the the test start i heard annoying Loud noise and then it stopped

i want to know is it normal for this series to hear the the drive operation ?
the store told me that is normal for the black series and offer me to replace to the blue series …

i need yours advice before changing the drive.
thanks in advance

The Cavira Black line are way much louder than the other drives therefore if you can’t live with the sound you should try a BLUE or GREEN but that will decrease the performance. Your choice!
