HI,

has anyone heard one of these, how are they for noise compared to the seagates, or the other FDB drive, they are quiet cheap compared to the others at only £70 for a 60GB drive.

PS It's not for me, it's for a friend who's harddrive has just broken (I will probably wait out for the SATA Cuda V : :) )

Thanks again guys

Elandra

Maxtor gives the specs as 2.5 Bels idle, and 3.5 seek. Compared to Seagate's stats of 2.5 idle and 3.3 seek for a Barracuda V. But with the Maxtor you can have 80Gigs with only a single platter, so that should help some.

My D740X is virtually silent after being S^3'd. So if the new drive is at least as quiet (and it may very well be even more so) it should be an attractive candidate.

cheers,

Thanks, for the speedy reply rusty. That sounds good enough for me to give him the go ahead, we'll see how it goes and I maybe able to do a comparison between them if I then get the barracuda V for for myself.
