I've asked before but wanted some new input if it's out there. I am looking to get a new 80gb harddrive and am trying to decide between a Seagate Barracuda IV (7200rpm ata100) and a Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 9 (7200rpm ata133). My main priority is a quiet drive, but I also want relatively good performance as well. The Seagate is an older model and performancewise not a match for the Maxtor, but I know it is a damn near silent drive, which is what I want. The Maxtor is a new model and as ata133 as well as allaround faster performance, but I don't know how quiet it runs. Supposedly it runs quiet too, but I dont know for sure. I can get either for about the same price and my mobo does support ata133. However, my main priority is a quiet drive given that the Seagate, though slower, performs well enough. However, if the Maxtor is just as or almost as quiet as the Seagate, I'd obviously prefer the newer faster drive. So anyone have experience with the new Maxtor? is it almost silent like the Seagate? thanks!
