    Considered unplugging the hard drives and turning on the PC to check whether the noise stops or not?

Seems like Samsung have inherited the DeathStar mantle so I expect that they'll be a class action lawsuit to follow by those crazy americans.
    Of my 100+ 1TB F1's I haven't had a single failure.

    They don't do mobile f1's?

    Interesting that because I can find no reference to them either on teh interweb but it definitely had F1 written on the back as part of the model/serial number. Either way I believe it was this type that I bought. Samsung 160g HM160HI
