Well we are more screwed than the WD GREEN days, as now we have more platters and Helium drives are not quiet, they are not black levels, but my WD Red 3tb and Green 2TB are much quieter, that said.... not much you can do, most of todays high density and platter drives are not quiet, so the solution is NAS and place it where you cant hear it.
