Toshiba’s 7200 RPM 3.5-inch (8.9cm) HDD series...

After 1 month of use this hdd start making a clicking noise (especially on heavy load) and some weird parking sounds (After this parking sound hdd will not responding for a couple of second it needs to spin up a little bit 3 or 5 second for return to normal state, which is not good, so fixing this issue I changed windows power setting never let the hdd to park itself *sigh). It's not very reliable product. This sounds it's not effecting the performance but it's makes me worry. I'll never going to buy any toshiba products again!
