    I don't think mine was noisy, but it was sitting on the same shelf as an xbox 360, which would have drowned it out completey even if it sounded like a jet.

    Oh, and when they die, they're totally silent.

    Mine came yesterday with the same lackluster packing...I'm very surprised at that. But, once unboxed and hooked up the THD found it no problem and it is installed and working ok. Haven't tested any recordings but I will today around 1:30...

    What's with the GIANT AC plug? Damn...I barely had room on the back of the Panamax for that beast...and the cord they give you to run from the THD to the WD is less than adequate in length. It fit for me but I can see that being a problem for some.

    Mine seems to louder than the THD which is pretty much silent, but I can definitely hear it, if I listen for it. Not as bad as it would be if it had a fan.
    If you have it in a bedroom I would think that you would hear it anytime there is activity on it.

    My Expander is in a cabinet with the TiVo HD and I can't hear either of them.

    It was simple to set up and works like a champ!

    We'll, I've heard enough :D

    Heard enough to know I'm not going to hear the drive so think I'll open the box tomorrow and give it the install it deserves :up:
