I didn't notice much sound from the drives except for when I was taxing it with OS installation there was some very soft clicking/churning from the drives, but certainly any 10k drive is not going to be completely silent. Packaging is a little much on the retail box, but the price for these in the 3.5" heatsinks saved me $50 each compared to the bare 2.5" drives, and probably will have longer life because of superior heat dissipation and vibration damping.
I will be rebuilding my PC soon and plan to use a small SSD for the OS and one of these Velociraptor drives for data and virtual machines.
Price wasn't bad either for an HD of this class.
This drive, purchased from Amazon, really speeded up my computer. I am running an ASRock 880G Pro 3 motherboard (also from Amazon) with an AMD Phenom II X2 560 Black Edition processor (overclocked and stable 4.0 Ghz on Air) so I have A FAST rig. I have a lot of fun ordering computer parts off the net and assembling them for better performance. Amazon makes the process a lot of fun. The Velociraptor has surprised me with how quiet it is and how cool it runs. Thanks WD and Amazon.
PS. I know I could have gone the SSD route, but I don't want to upgrade to WIndows 7 and mess with the problems till they are more improved and much lower in price for an over 500 Gb one. THEN I will sell my Velociraptor and get one.
There is the occasional lag as it spins up, but nothing unusual for a disk drive.
