    Pretty fast, good warranty on it.

    This is essentially the Cadillac of hard drives, a super high end datacenter-grade drive with a five year warranty at a bargain price (relative to what it is). It's not helium filled despite what the marketing materials may lead you to believe (you'd need to step up to the 8 TB model or higher for that), but it has excellent performance characteristics nonetheless. There are some minor intermittent bouts of clicking from time to time - this is normal according to WD's site, and it's not the alarming kind of clicking associated with a failing drive as it's more of a deeper and far less frequent noise. Read/write performance is very good for a HDD, but a SSD will always beat it. This isn't the drive to get if you just need dirt-cheap storage (there are cheaper consumer-grade 6 TB drives out there), but it's definitely the drive to get if you need something that's very high quality. While this is technically optimized for use in RAID arrays, it works perfectly well as a standalone drive.
