Question for you day one's (and two's)

What is the operating noise like?
Firstly the console itself - can any one compare this to the Wii U which has a barely audible fan.
Secondly, the power supply unit, like the Xbox Slim the Xbox One PSU has a fan, the Slim's PSU had a loud whiny fan, is this the same for the One?
Thirdly, disc spin noise, for the units which are not faulty. For example, the disc spin noise in the Wii U is very loud, how does the One compare?

Thanks in advance for all sensible objective replies from those who understand noisy consoles are not for everybody.

Very quiet console!
The loudest I've heard it is whilst installing a disc! And even that is barely even noticeable!
It's a lot quieter that my 360 that's for sure!

Can't hear a thing on mine apart from the little whistle it makes when you turn it on.

@ Ant

1.) My Console itself is running quiet. Yes, there IS a fan and of course you can hear it, when you put your head on your console, but it runs smooth.
2.) My Power Supply (and not just mine) seems to be the problem. It has a small fan, which runs fast (especially while and after gaming). And it is louder than the console itself - definitely. And it seems that i am not the only one with it

3.) My Disc-Drive runs smooth, too. Much quieter than XBOX 360 (slim) or PS3.

I hope Microsoft will release a new and optimized Revision of the Power Supply soon, then everything will be fine.
