got a replacement for my -100 thru the PP and wow this machine is loud. the drive makes a 'marbles' noise at regular intervals, i dont know how else to describe it...maybe more like a vibrating fan or perhaps a water wheel on an oldtime humidifier circling it's even sitting on top of my hdtivo, which has a very loud secondary fan and i can hear the -700 even over the tv volume. would they make a housecall and give me a quieter machine? or do we just all have to live with annoying whirring? oh it also said the wholehouse beta has ended, so i guess someone else had that. I dont.
