If any of the fans are made from opaque plastic, then those will be quieter than the transparent ones (if the RPM's are the same) -- the clear plastic is much more brittle and it resonates more.

Basically not all models can be found in my country
So only if my friends or family goes abroad they can buy items outside this list
You may also recommend some brands but they are only available if someone I know goes abroad

However, it's also true that Samsung were first off the block with a high performance, 7200rpm 1TB drive at an affordable price, so there are probably lots of drives sold and people only ever complain if t...
