Comment: isn't noise irrelevant? (Score 1) 318

Forgive me if I'm missing the point, but I can't see that choosing a hard disk on its noise production is in any way sensible. Surely the key factor is performance either in terms of speed, or if on a budget, whether one goes for a larger size which runs at a slower speed. Noise surely must be the most insignificant of all factors.
