If it doesn't cost you anything to return it, it can't hurt to try.

Samsung drives are really quiet.
One drive in particular has won an award in the past:

The Samsung Spinpoint series

Are there any other websites like newegg where I can get a Samsung 250gb hard drive for around $70? Newegg only carries like 2 or 3 Samsung drives for some reason.

Okay, I'm probably going to get a Samsung drive and send the Seagate back. I'm going to have to clone the drive though. Do you think I'll have any problem doing that? I'm planning on using Seagate's discwizard utility.
