Anyway, pick up a WD6400AAKS as a solid 7200rpm drive. Don't bother with Seagate. Their 7200.11 drives underperform compared to the competition right now. Don't bother with Samsung either - sure their F1 line is fast but Samsung is not a big name in hard drives yet so I wouldn't pay big money for this. It's like buying a Hyundai Sonata over a Toyota Camry. Sure, the Hyundai works just like the Camry, but it's a Hyundai for chrissake!
Definitely do not agree with that statement. Samsung drives have been around for a long time and among people who care how loud their computers are generally buy Samsung drives.
