    My HR24 sounds like a siren starting up when it first restarts but then it is pretty quiet. :)

    My 24-500 was silent from the get-go. And the eSATA setup I put on it is just as silent.

    I was watching those videos again at work, and between the A/C and my own noisy computer (PC fan) I can barely hear anything.

    The noise is more apparent on my iMac home computer when things are quiet.

    If I can find it among all the moving boxes, I'll try again with a camcorder and external microphone.
