Manufacturer’s Description

Samsung boasts that the SpinPoint P80 series is another extension of its quietest line of drives currently available today, both in idling and operation. Using Samsung's own NoiseGuard acoustic suppression technology and SilentSeek technology, in which the drive incorporates sine wave current profiles while seeking, the P80 family drives are whisper-quiet compared with the racket produced by most drives.
