Something that would be usefully added to these HDD tests is a comparison of heat and noise generated by the drives. Both of these factors is a huge determinent for a lot of systems, but often left out of the tests. The noise factor is a tough one to accurately gauge, as it is not nesessarily the overall loudest HDD that is the worst, it is the HDD that has inconsistent noises (ie: head seeking clicks, spin-up/spin-down noises, drive whines, etc.)

Adding this criteria to the test would be most appreciated.
