A drive quieter than the Seagate Barracuda IV?

Since its introduction late last year, the Seagate Barracuda IV has been the quietest drive on the block. Well, according to Storage Review, that title no longer belongs to the Barracuda IV. Who's the new king of the hill? Another Seagate Barracuda. A SCSI version of the Barracuda. As the Storage Review charts show, the Barracuda 36ES2 measures a full 2dB(A) quieter than the 80GB Barracuda IV. Part of this is due to the single-platter design of the 36ES2 compared to the dual-platter design of the 80GB model. Still, for the SCSI enthusiasts out there, this is certainly good news!
