Summary0259: HDD access sound much noisier than T835
DescriptionFrom a user point of view, the T7300 is much noisier than the T835 when, in particular, making recordings. On the T7300, the disk access noise when writing is pretty much constant (can be heard many times a second). On the T835 the noise is less obtrusive because you can only audibly hear it at a far lesser frequency. If you compare the T835 and T7300 when recording 2 programmes at once, the difference is more than noticable.

I guess the T7300 is perhaps using smaller buffers than the T835, and/or caused by the sector/block size being different. I'm not sure if this can easily be tweaked or not, but obviously this not of utmost priority.

With the newer 500Gb box, I have to say that the HDD noise is not so bad, and definitely much better than the older 320Gb box. Whether this was addressed by the newer software, or the 500Gb being itself quieter, I don't know. I'm happy for this issue to be closed unless you think it can be improved :).
