I've had 3 or 4 different hard drive enclosures in my life time, each one of them sounded like a jet taking off (well, not nearly that bad but annoyingly loud). I was wondering if there are any hard drive closures out there they either don't have a fan (is this safe for a hard drive enclosure?) or is extremely quiet? Someone told me you would be fine with a 5400 rpm drive in an enclosure without a fan... is this true? Another option would be if I could somehow put the drivers in a closet in an obscure location in my appartment and somehow network with them at very high speeds, without having a dedicated computer (meaning no mac, linux, or windows box acting as a server).
