The aerial density of the Samsung F1 1TB drive is so high that is is faster in all but seek time than the raptors and a lot quieter. We all know why sanity1082 says he hasn't heard any complaints, he's been deafened!! I like quite computers and the raptors are just not quiet. I think tomshardware guide did a comparison of the F1 and raptor not long ago. It might be worth a read. Also the F1 is surprisingly cheap now, I have seen it for less than 100. I will be sticking one on my mac mini server shortly! Then replacing the boot drive on my mac pro with one too. You will notice the word I picked was ON my mac mini server, being a 3.5" drive it will not fit inside but a nice SATA cable set will work
