They are the quieter option, and performance is about the same as a Maxtor 10, but they are a bit more expensive, don't offer the higher capacitys, and have a lower cache, so unless noise is the priority, the maxtor 10 is the better option.

If your aim is a near silent system though then the spinpoints are the better choice.
