I'm in the market for a new SATA hard drive Here is the listing of the drives available to me by my local retailer. I was wondering if any of you have had experience with any of these or have suggestions on other drives that you would recommend. Any resources, tips or experiences you've had are welcome. The two things that are most important to me in order of importance are: * noise output, must be very low * performance I've listed the top 4 manufacturors in the poll. I hear very good things about Samsung but unfortunately my retailer does not carry any SATA drives from them, I refuse to order it unless the price is very good. The WD Raptor's are very tempting with their performance but I fear the noise would be too much. Related Threads: Posted, then went and looked in the forum..atleast the poll is new.
