My Seagate 15K rpm (v2) isn't that noisy. I suspended it w/ Stretch magic & can't hear it at all (see the Gallery forum for pics). I think v 3 & 4 r even quieter.

Even before suspension, it was a lot quieter than my older 7.2K SCSI disks.

Sometimes there's a adjustment on the flash or camera that might direct more light deeper into the system...even just a desk/table pointing into the puter would help.

...SNIP..And most importantly ;-) ...should I get the silver/aluminum or the black V1000+ case...SNIP... Thanks, Daniel That's a pretty case in either color. Take a look around where the unit will be placed...put something black or silver there if that helps...OK, which blends in better? Cheers peter
