Can anyone recommend a 2tb, 3.5 desktop hard drive that won't sound like a ticking time bomb when in use?

I have tried both Seagate (ST2000NM0011), (ST33000651NS) and Western Digital Black (which is suppose to be the quietest -But was the loudest H.D. tried).  I'd like to keep the cost under $60 if possible - I think I should be able to get a decent H.D. for that.

It's a refurb. Hitachis have a great reputation. I have 6 Hitachi refurbs myself 2 of which are 3 years old so far.

Thanks, I'll give it a try. I always though Hitachi were bad drives although I never tried them. Main Point: how quiet are these hard drives?

I don't hear mine and the box is on a shelf 8 inches from my ear.
