    New Sata HDD Time, which ones quieter?

    hey ive been looking for a new 160gb Sata2 hard disk, and ive narrowed it down to two different hds:

    - 160Gb Hitachi (IBM/HGST) Deskstar T7K250
    - 160Gb Samsung SpinPointâ„¢ HD160JJ

    The Specs for both of these are exactly the same, although i wanted to know which one was the more quieter?

    Any other opinions will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    Nearly all the reviews on hard drives praise Samsung drives for their quiet running. The latest SATAII drives are also some of the fastest performers as well as being the quietest.

    I make that Samsung 3: Hitachi 0
    Core i7 920, Asus P6T, 3x2 1333 DDR3, Vista x64, Ageing 8800GT (Next upgrade!), Adaptec 1430SA with 4x500 gig HD (2x RAID 0 and 2x RAID 1), Blu Ray rewriter, 1TB HD for data, housed in Cooler Master ATCS 840 awaiting water cooling with Corsair HX1000 PSU, Microsoft Habu and Reclusa, 22" and 17" TFT.

    The Deskstars use 133GB platters it should be noted, so are generally faster then most other currently available 7200RPM drives, just so you know
