[QUOTE=seiji338;2244137]I’m considering buying this drive and had a few questions for those that have it already. How’s the quality of the drive itself? Any seek noise or high pitch whine from this drive? Solid tray action? I’m returning a Samsung SH-S223Q I just bought as the high pitch whine it makes is unbearable and don’t want a repeat Thanks.[/QUOTE]
Tray action seems quite solid, drive seems a little sturdier than 7200 series drives. I agree with James that it’s quiet. The only thing that caused me a bit of concern is that mine pauses very briefly when starting to eject, almost as if it’s stuck. But then it ejects just fine. Not sure if it’s just mine.
