[B]Fitted one of these maxtor's to my roomies box and its loud too. It makes those loud fast clicking noises like computers from '94 and older. The WD 120 in mine is perfectly silent though. [/B]
Thats exactly what it sounds like.............good call!

I got Maxtor Dimondmax plus 9 120gb 7200rpm and it doesn't make noises as you ppl are saying. It sounds normal to me. I got WesternDigital in my PC as well, and both sounds the same. maybe you ppl had experience with too quite drives and thinking that its too loud. anyway i bought this cos it was the cheapest at that range.
