I agree about mounting, and also agree with some comments about the middle cage being quieter then the bottom on a 182. I have tried both and found the mid cage more tolerable. Because I needed to mount a fan there I moved the drive to the bottom. I don't think it likes being used sideways at all! S...

Re: Sample variance?

I've bought two Samsung drives recently for a new quiet system - a HD321LJ and a HD501LJ.
