Popular Mechanics Magazine selects the

Network-attached storage (NAS) drives allow
users to easily back up their data and access media files from multiple
computers across a home network. But most of them have a serious flaw:
Their spinning platters and churning fans are too loud for a device that's

spinning fans, this drive's fans turn off when the aren't needed.
