Does this product come with internal fans to keep the hard drives cool, and if so, how quiet are they?

I've tried a number of different external hard drive enclosures and products, and been disappointed when they say they are 'whisper quiet' but actually are quite loud, especially in a very quiet room.

    Yes.

    Quiet is a relative term. I find the device quiet since there is one large fan inside. The drives inside can be heard when being accessed. You here the disk heads seeking, but it is very quiet.
