This.

The Blacks are definitely some of the loudest hard drives. However, the noise that I hear from mine compared to the rest of the fans and whatnot in my case, you wouldn't be able to tell.

i cant hear mine over the GPU fans when they are turned up above 30% and with the other 4 fans i had hooked up i couldn't hear it at all.

but Smurf is right the Samsung F4s are damn good drives that are really quiet

My Samsung f3 is the loudest hard drive I have ever owned. Sounds like a small jet on spinup.

Then it's defective and should be replaced under warranty if it still covered. That's a sign of a bad spindle motor or bearing and is NOT normal.

I was exaggerating a bit, but it is noticeable at startup.

My VelociRaptor sounds just like a flash charging on a camera right after a Flash shot.

Most hard drives sound like that on startup; all of mine do, but my SATA drives are very quiet when they do it. My IDE drive has very loud startup and shutdown noises

I've always heard that the Raptors and VelociRaptors are really loud though
