Hi, Lifeisabeach! It did occur to me, so I did several hours of research and found many other people complaining of the same things. Quite a few of them sent for four or five replacements and still ended up with a nosy drive. It's not really a computer problem, it's just that certain drives tend to be noisy... I think Seagates were the worst, Hitachis were hit-and-miss, and WD's were silent for most people (I have one in my MBP and it's dead silent). The problem is, you can't specify what brand you want. That's why I'm wondering whether, by some chance, Apple might have stopped using the Seagates.

Here's one example:

Out of curiosity, what kind of drive do you have?
