    Any recommendations for low power, quiet 8tb hard drive? Will be either usb hard drive for media box downstairs or put inside my d-link dns-323

    I've just bought a WD Gold and can confirm its very quiet, I had mine sat on the desk next to me backing up about 5tb worth of data and apart from the odd click I forgot it was there.
