Great spindle drive. Most are long lasting, fast, and speedy.
I had one die on me after 2 months of use on my workstation. This surprised me, as I've been purchasing WD Black drives for servers for over 10 years. A few only died close to the end of the 5 year warranty period. Most live long enough that the storage size isn't useful any more. So I placed a lot of trust in using a single WD Black drive on my workstation, and it died. I shoulda-coulda-woulda raided it. The morale of the story is to never trust a spindle drive, no matter how awesome they are. (Minus one egg due to my own dumb frustrations.)
