I have a maxtor 120gb 7200 and its fine. Its a little louder than the original XBox HD, but its not very noticeable.

I recently installed one in a friends PC and yes you can hear it, but unless anything but silence annoys you, it's fine.

I find certain games are 'louder' than others - they provoke something that sounds like an old PC struggling to open a big piece of sotware.

DOA3 seems to make the most noise on mine.

I used to have a WD Special Ed which was much quieter.

Makes me think it needs a good defrag.

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.
