Initially I went with the 500GB GreenPower disk, but found it was too noisy in my mediacenter. So I swapped it for a 80GB Samsung 2.5" and put it inside a 3.5" Scythe quiet drive. Which also made mounting it a lot easier. It's now nearly silent (sensitive ears..) in open air, but I can't discern it ...

Judging solely by the soundrecordings, the caviar seeks are much more like purring while the Samsung (seeks) remind me of an old (noisy) Seagate I'm now using because of a soon-to-fail Maxline III. Was planning on...
