Noisy when seeking if you have it in a laptop,
This review is from: Western Digital Scorpio Blue 320GB SATA 8MB Cache 2.5 inch Internal Hard Drive OEM - Sony Playstation PS3 Compatible (Personal Computers)
Reliable, acceptably fast.
Trouble is the seek noise. When accessing files theres a constant gritty metallic sound which would be quiet for a desktop hard drive, but in a laptop without any other sounds to drown it out its plain irritating and feels antiquated.
Idle noise is good.
Many reckon its quiet but I've had 2 scorpios and both were loud.
My new seagate 320GB 7200.3 is nearly silent when seeking (but the idle noise is slightly louder as it spins quicker), much quicker, and only £10 more.
