    The drive is very quiet (or least mine is). I do hear the occasional click as the drive spins up to speed. The drive is very fast and works very well with Logic Studio and Final Cut.

  • Too loud for my quiet desk and acute hearing. Fan, humming, etc...

  • In a carpeted room with low ceilings and lots of furniture it's not too bad.
    I've recently moved into a house with wooden floor boards and high ceilings and now... It's noisy as h3ll !
    When copying files to it, it chugs and grinds so loud it distracts me from my work.

    I'm considering putting it in a padded box.

  • It is pretty quiet. Of course with TimeMaschine it will turn on every hour
