    Just got this drive..with the 8MB cache (already have a 120gb IDE one) anyway i've found the running noise fine but the seek noise on it is bloody loud!...anyone else have this drive and what does it sound like? or is this a consequence of SATA? my IDE doesn't make a sound.

    i recently read that seagate had patent issues with the AAM technology they use to keep seek noise down?and that they had disabled these on new shipped drives?

    it might be i have a duff drive!:rolleyes:
