I enjoy playing a lot of games on my PC. I also enjoy writing and listening to music.
I want to buy a recent IDI 60 or 80 gig drive that is fast but also fairly quiet.
At the moment I am running an IBM drive that makes a weird sound, grind, grind, grind, like chinese water torture :?
I don't mind noise as much when it is constant, like a hum, but when it switches on and off I find it distracting.
The last hard drive I had that was not distracting was a fujitsu. But they are out of business. Also I found they weren't very dependable. I got two new ones under warrenty.
I was looking at a Samsung, they seem quiet, but are they fast enough for games? Are they reliable?
If you are both a gamer and a lover of quiet hard drives and you have a drive to recomend, I would be most grateful. I would rather spend a lot on a drive that suits my purposes than have to put up with another noisy slow drive that doesn't even last a year.
