    Hi!
    After giving up 7200 rpm HD's due to heat/noise/vibrations (vibrations really bother me) I need an advice from you which 5400 drive to choose, I need a dead cold/silence and no vibrating drive.
    Which one do you suggest?
    Thanks :D

    I have got a Samsung HM641JI (640GB, 2.5" SATA) in external enclosure for TM. It's dead silent.

    Whenever I ask for hard-drive advice, the smartest computer people I know always recommend me Western Digital HDDs. Scorpio Blue for 5400RPM, Scorpio Black for 7200RPM. I have Black and it works wonderfully. Always go with WD. :)
