Quiet USB External Hard Drive? -

I am looking for a 1 or 2TB External USB HDD to store movies and music on for playback on my BD Player.
I am very interested in the 'Western Digital Elements 1TB Portable USB 3.0/2.0 Hard Drive'
Available for about £60
However, my concern is, as I often watch movies late at night when it is very quiet, and, quite frankly the most noise that comes form my PC is this horrid loud HDD noise, I have both of them set to spin down after 5 minutes and it is so lovely when they do! so, just how loud are these external hard drives? this will be my first one.
USB 3.0 is nice also, so I can copy files from my PC to the USB HDD faster.
Are there any others I should consider? that are QUIET as well as decent?
