As long as it works and is not making a clicking noise, then I'm gona say it's ok. Allot of drive make kind of a growling sound when reading and writing data. It is nothing to be concerned about. The "C" drive in my primary computer sounds allot like a quiet coffee grinder when it's operating.

If it's making a smooth "humming" noise then that's normal.

If it's making loud clicking noises or grinding noises then that's a concern and you should take it back.
