18TB HDD - Which one is the quietest?

Hello guys,

Does anyone own different 18 TB Models and can tell us about their relative noise levels?

I have 18TB WD GOLD only in my system at home atm. I also have Ironwolf Pro Drives at hand but did not install them yet. One concern is that the other drives might make much more noise. The WD Gold drives are super quiet while running 24/7 only as Chia Plot destinations.

I think that info is possibly in the data sheets.

Some data.

Well to that guy all 18 TB drives are noisy. He prolly did not use anti-vibration mountings.

Let me rephrase my question. Which 18 TB has lowest access noise? :slight_smile:

You’d have to read all the data sheets, or Google it like I did for you.
