im looking for a low noise hard drive's.
all they need to be is sata,~250 gb. and relativly nippy
yup i second that, samsung is the king of quiet.
Deo Adjuvante non Timendum
Hitachi is good too (T7K250/7K250), don't think 7K400/7K500 is as quiet though.
My 4 Hitachis together is less noisy than a 7200.9

SmoothNuts!~yaman_an@*.dsl.pipex.com > change my rating to exceptional tbh
Seagate or Samsung
|| Q9450 @ 3.40Ghz || Maximus Formula X38 || 4GB OCZ PC2-8000 XTC ||
|| 768MB 8800GTX OC || 500GB Seagate || 2TB Western Digital || 24" Dell ||
I also have a Hitachi which I believe is the same as mentioned above. I can't hear it exept for when it purrs switching heads every 15 mins or so.
Why? They are only about £55 for 250gb now so 500gb for £110 is a bit of deal compared to one 500gb disk for £180ish. Systems these days can handle a shedload of drives so I would have thought the saving was worth itOriginally Posted by Funkstar
not so good if you want to put them into single drive NAS boxes. It also means twice as much power usage (Spinpoints and WD Caviars are both rated at 9.5W peak)
Fair point, I always forget that pc's have some use other than for gaming!Originally Posted by Funkstar
