Re: external/mobile storage: SATA->Firewire

only buy Samsung-spinpoints from now on because of their noise charactaristics and use them as swappable storage for a fast growing collection of digital photos. Problem is, the only Nidec-equipped drives I can find locally are the SATA version. I think PATA drives will become ever harder to come b...

I am working on several other reference sounds -- certainly more reference fans, including at least one noisy one. The thing I am looking for is a truly universal reference that is accessible almost everywhere, a sound that everyone is familar with and has in their house or office, but it's hard to...

so black cases provide unpowered USB :lol: I didn't say black cases have unpowered USB ports. I just said that they were pointing out on an upside-down mounted BQE that the ports are unpowered. I cannot confirm this, though, since those same ports managed to power up my USB hard drive. I never real...

I have 3 7200.7 of 160GB and 3 of 120GB all of them IDE, and then another 7200.7 SATA 200GB, and I think this last one makes more noise. That's my subjective guess based on spontaneous "mmm... what's that noise?"

Zalman ZM400B APS not in recommended list?

I can't find Zalman ZM400B-APS on the recommended list of PSUs, only the Zalman ZM300A-APF is there. Is this for any reason?

note, that PSU was reviewed here:
