Silent PC Review attacks one of the hardest to quiet components in the PC, the hard drive.  To meet the challenge, the review 2 single platter drives, one from Hitachi and one from Seagate.  Read on to see just how successful they were.

"It's no secret that the quietest desktop hard drives tend to be low capacity models that use only
