    ok- I made a foolish error in buying a noisy hard drive- I know it should have been a Seagate Barracuda......has anyone used the hard drive silencers that are out there? Is it best to just buy a new hard drive?

    Have have never seen this product before. I have WD drives and never hear them. I hear fans.

    Hardly seems worth the trouble...

    I have a new Western Digital and I don\'t really notice it. New drives aren\'t suppose to make that much noise anymore.
    My previous drive had a Molex Silent Systems foam lined sleeve which reduces the noise with 90%! However, an often heard comment about packaging drives is that they tend to shorten the life of the drive. I don\'t know if it is related but my sleeved drive died on me a little while back. It\'s the first one! All my other and older (noisy)ones are still alive and kicking. A technician told me that was quite normal after 2 or 3 years and that I was lucky with the other drives. These days I don\'t know the truth anymore. Except that new modern drives should be almost silent.
