I only have the Hitachi Deskstar 3TB.
But I can tell you it's one of the loudest drives I own and I even suspended it but it still gives of noise.

I have the 3TB WD GP and its not whisper quiet like my 1.5TB(same acoustics as the 2TB). Right now the 2TB WD GP and Hitachi 5K3000 2TB are the only large capacity drives that are up to SPCR standards.
