I have the Samsung SV0802N, It came with my HP(terrible choice i know, but ther e is a story why).
anyways, the hard drive was made to be quiet, and SiSoft Sandra says that it is running in "silence" mode, and it tells me that there is a diffrent setting to it. But i cannot find anyway to change this setting. My Western Digital "Special Edition" 80gb, 8mb cache, BARELY makes more noise then this current Samsung. So it makes me angry that some one would kill the preformance on this hdd while others arn't loud in the first place.
