lol I really want a DAB radio, are they really that good? Their designs look really bad! I could go into heavy detail about DAB but we'd be here for hours...so.. Pros - depending on where you are...lots of stations, better choice, massive improvement in quality over AM, no interference, text inform...

Well the other case I'm looking at is the Acousticase which fits the bill but is anything but cheap :(

Prob with the door for me is that I'll probably be using the drives quite heavily thereby making it of little use Have you considered the LX-6A19? There is a place on the web that sells it with all kinds of modifications for a very reasonable price. You can check it out here: http://www.coolcases.c...

If Antec came with an no-PSU option I'd consider them...though I'm not won over by case front doors. After reading the posts about Samsung woes it's got me worried as I'm going to be doing a lot of audio work...I'm not going to be too happy if I get a complete fail.. I know audio specialists in UK a...

Likely to be Acousticase C6607..so I'd hope anything would be at least muffled

SATA Drives - Samsung vs Seagate..Best choice?

I was veering towards Samsung...but I'm a bit concerned about potential reliability issues.

So which is a better pick based on quietness, reliability and speed..?

FYI I'm looking at getting 2 160gb drives

Thanks

Zalman ZM400B-APF vs ZM400B-APS

Does anyone know any other differences between the APF and APS models apart from SATA connectors?

Does the APF not work with SATA HDDs or do you need to buy additional connectors?

Cheers...

Which other quiet drive to complement Plextor PX-708A?

I'm totally decided in getting the Plextor DVD +/- writer, but I'm looking to get either a CD writer or a DVD drive to add to my build. From what I can tell LG, Samsung and Plextors are the quietest. As it's for my audio powerhouse set-up I still want a quality drive and it must be black fronted. Th...

I have a Satellite 5100-503, and it is pretty quiet until you put a bit of strain on on the CPU (P4-M 1.7). Overall it's fine.

The HD ticks over, fine as far as I'm concerned, again can get a bit busy but it's not at all bad.

As far as I'm concerned Tosh is as good a choice as any.
