A solid backup drive

WD Ultrastar DC HC550 16TB Hard Drive 3.5" Internal 512MB SATA 7200 RPM 512E SE NP3 DC HC550 0F38462 (WUH721816ALE6L4)
WD Ultrastar DC HC550 16TB Hard Drive 3.5" Internal 512MB SATA 7200 RPM 512E SE NP3 DC HC550 0F38462 (WUH721816ALE6L4)

Pros: 16TB, 7200rpm

Cons: It's kind of loud, warranty confusion

Overall Review: This drive is on the cutting edge with all the bells and whistles - EAMR, helium-filled, triple stage actuator, and a whopping nine platters. When it spins up, you can feel it and hear it running. I use it as a backup drive in an external enclosure, so I spin it down when it's not in use. I'm a bit unclear on the warranty policy. I got it cause I thought it was 5 years (as it is on WDC's site), but Newegg is listing it as a 2 year warranty, so if it's actually 2 years (which seems wrong), that would be a big negative.

Fast and Good

Pros: Easy install, no difficulty working with it. I don't have good benchmarking on my system, but I'm getting read speeds of at least 700+ MB/s.

Cons: None I can see.

Overall Review: I'm using it with the GIGABYTE GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5 motherboard as an SSD cache for my RAID array on debian linux. Everything works as expected!
