T510 with integrate graphics using 90w adapter may solve seagate 7200 500G noise problem

2010-03-02, 1:33 AM

Someone in a forum mentioned a Seagate 7200 hard drive works prefect with no sound and lag when used in a harddrive box with extra power supply . The 500G 7200rpm Seagate hard drive makes noisy sound may be caused by quality as well as power supply. Can T510 with integrate graphics use a 90w adapter?

I don't think seagate has very good quality control.  The seagate drive I had in my computer when I got it was extremely noisy, and putting it in an external enclosure only quieted it down because it is in a metal enclosure.. if used open it is still incredibly loud. 

 

The thing is, it is possible the external enclosure is forcing a different operating mode on the drive.. keep in mind most laptop hds have acoustic profiles which can be altered.

 

I doubt that  a 90watt would be much different then the 65watt in this situation...

Thanks for your advice. It seems that most people think seagate hard drives are loud.
