Great Drive

A good compromise; fast, long life, with lots of storage space. Very well worth the money. The drives are quiet and lack the high pitched noise that older drives used to make, but it is still not as quiet as a 7200rpm drive. If noise is a consideration then you need a rubber mounting kit such as the one made by Skythe - Hard Disk Stabilizer II. That just about eliminates all the HDD noise.

Fast, cool & fairly quiet

Great niche drive for cache/DataBase (& rapid imaging of an SSD), it really has some grunt, for write mostly application. Noticeably sped up texture loads. Drive boots Linux in SSD like times (Sandforce SSD is prone to troubles with the chipset).

The seeking is audible (passively cooled graphics card used) but not annoyingly loud. Despite high spin speed, it remains cool (32C or so).

Top performing HDD, where hyrbrid or SSD drive less suitable.
