StorageReview.com has it at 35db standby, 39db during access. I
believe that those are very good numbers. I also heard a rumor
that current WDxxJB drives use fluid dynamic bearings so they
should be as quiet as any out there (but I wouldn't necessarily
take that as gospel, I think the WDxxPB drives are the ones
with the fluid dynamic bearings).
