Default Quiet Drive + WD Caviar Black


I just got a Quiet Drive about a week ago and I want to give some feedback on the installation and performance of it. In general the installation was easy, it was also described very well on the sheet with pictures etc. The only really annoying thing about the installation was screwing the two outer case pieces together. Those four black countersunk-screws are so small and you need to screw those into the threads of the outer case while applying hard pressure. Doing that on your own is really frustrating so I needed someone who pressed the outer case together and I tighten the screws.

The quiet drive really turns down the sound of the hdd. You can actually still hear something but in a more comfortable way.

The temperature of the hdd raises very slowly from the computer startup and reaches a final temperature. Concerning performance of temperature I thought the quiet drive would perform better.

My HDD is around 2° C warmer than without the quiet drive. I have a Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB. It reaches a final temperature of 44-45°C.
