Looking for the quietest drive of all. I will be using it at home, in the living room, next to my working table and where the family eats and watches TV... I need 8 TB drive... I have seen the Wstern Digital Red... Where does stand the Synology HAT5300-8T 8TB HDD 3.5" Edición Enterprise NAS 256MB in this chart on this page of yours? https://nascompares.com/wd-seagate-hgst-toshiba-noise-level-comparison/ I have watched all your videos on this new drive but I´m undecided... Thanks for your advice. Many thanks, Best Carmelo
The quietest Hard drive in the 8TB range will be WD Red. But if you needed absolute silence then it would be SSD or 2.5inch laptop drives but either they are very expensive or unavailable.
New Synology hard drives are just rebranded Toshiba drives. These HDDs will be fairly loud compared to other drives. They are made for rack mount solutions.
I hope this helps.
