I need your oppinion

I have a 10gb 5400rpm harddrive and It makes allot of noise. The kind of noise that goes piiiiip and makes you go crazy at times...
I found a great gadget from silentsystems that will cut harddrive noise by 90%(it's like a box that you put the harddrive in). Go here to see what it looks like(the page is in swedish sorry)http://www.gtek.net/produkt/silent/sdrive.shtml
Some people are saying that this silentdrive will be the death of my harddrive, but I don't agree how can my harddrive overheat when it is so slow?
What do you guys think...

  1. Some times that is a sound that hard drive might be going out. Some are load some are not.

  2. Does that device have a fan in the back?

  3. I checked it out since I can read swedish. Does the HD produce those dreaded 5W? I have no clue on Wattage, but it seems to me that it would be wiser to spend your money on a new harddrive. 279 kronor for that thing is money that should only be spent if you are inte a silent drive, your harddrive beeping sounds bad and I wouldn't invest any money in it.

  4. Well, how hot does it get now, without the 'silencer'? If it is already 15 Celsius above ambient - forget it - it'll get too hot.
    Otherwise, for US$ 10 (=279SEK) it's worth a try, but I strongly advice to keep an eye on the HD temp.!
    Anyway - was your HD always as loud as now ? If no, back up your data and get a new one...

    Good luck
