Hi all

Can anybody share his experience with WD 3TB Green (30EZRX) in terms of acoustic sound and vibration?
I'm going to get one, but I'd like to know the experience of SPCR residents.

I trust SPCR more than others. Thanks. :mrgreen:

Sorry cant give you any opinions on 3tb greens as i dont own one. But i would suggest, if you can, to spend a little more and go with the red, that has been already reviewed by SPCR Western Digital Red 3TB & 1TB Hard Drives and got the editors choice. Personally im looking forward for the new 5tb WD reds that should come very soon, hope SPCR gets some to test.

I have one which I use as a backup drive. In my non scientific opinion it is fairly quiet for a HD, but noticeably louder than the 1.5 and 2 TB greens that SPCR did review.

Thanks for yours' reply. Since I don't need NAS/Raid specific features of WD Red, I guess Green's quietness should be very similar to Red and can satisfy my need of storage use...... But it's my speculation. I want SPCR approval anyway. :lol:
