Is Seagate 7200.7 80gig SATA quiet?

Post by soundOFsilence » Mon Nov 10, 2003 10:37 am

Is it quieter than the 160gig version? I owned the 160 gig, and the seek noise was just killing me. Is 80 gig quieter? Does it have one platter? I was also reading the thread about the intermittent buzzing on the 7200.7 80gig, and got a little worried.

How does it compare to the 120 gig 7200.7 or Maxtor models?

Thanks

The seek noise is by far the loudest thing on my 80Gig 7200.7. I don't have the 160Gig to compare to, but seek is loud on the 80Gig. Not that it bothers me much. ;)
