Noisy hard drives have historically been a significant source of noise in computers. Today's computers are increasingly using Solid State Drives (SSDs) in their designs, eliminating noisy hard disk drive platters. However, for applications requiring large data storage, Hard Disk Drives (HDDs) are still much more affordable for a similar amount of data storage.
We recommend using SSD drives in your quiet computer, or else using Western Digital Red Series Hard Drives (HDDs). WD Red Series Hard Drives use modern design for silent operation. To quiet these hard drives further (or the noisy hard drive you already own), you can utilize the hard drive dampeners we sell here.
