The Samsung MT2 is a very good price for a 1Gb 2.5" drive, anyone got info on the noise/vibration, and reliability of Samsung drives generally?

cheers :)

I know SDDs are the ultimate silent drives, but for terabytes HDDs are still relevant. Unfortunately, the latest update in this article is from December 2009 and we're almost in December 2011.

Any chance we can get an update on more modern and lager capacity HDDs like the HITACHI DeskStar series? (2TB - 3TB)?

To me, as someone who has owned more than a few recommended drives, I doubt any current 3TB drive will be included until the manufacturers move to >1TB platters.
