I was looking for quite SATAII HDD last 2 weeks.
After viewing test of hdds here on storagereview I've dicided to buy Samsung P120 (model SP2504C) becouse it was most quite HDD on the graph.
I thought I will neaver hear that HDD but situation is not like that...
My old Hitachi HDT722516DLAT80 (160GB ATA 8mb) is more quite then this samsung, and this new samsung of mine has more iritant noise too.
I can hear it when Im 5m far from computer (Im not using case)
Im talking about idle mode.
So I've tryed to compare it with 120mm fan and noise is similiar when fan is on 1100rpm, but HDD still has its iritant noise...
Did I get some wrong P120 or Im just too much noise freek?
btw. I've tryed with AAM but that just reduce seek noise and my problem is idle noise...
