Hi guys, I'm new to these forums so go easy on me! I recently bought a bigger and faster hard drive to replace the one in my white macbook 2.0 GHz (GeForce 9400m). The one I went with was a seagate momentus 7200.4 320GB 7200 rpm. I installed it with no problems - until that is I used it in a quiet room and realised I could hear it! Now don't get me wrong, it isn't what I would call excessively loud, but I heard it all the time without even listening out for it. The only time I ever heard the standard 120GB drive was when I placed my ear against the macbook casing... I know that I'm just a fussy b*****d but I couldn't stand the noise - it was like a dripping tap and I couldn't ignore it! So I put the original drive back in and the silence is blissful. So now what I want to do is buy a bigger drive that is as quiet or quieter than the standard macbook drive - I realise that I may have to sacrifice 7200 rpm for 5400, but I'm ok with that. Is the hitachi travelstar any good? Any thoughts will be much appreciated, and sorry for the long ramblings! Robin.
