Was it that bad, was it just a defective unit or do you just have an extremely low tolerance for noise?
I don't keep my equipment under the screen or beside it, that is a visual distraction. My rack is behind my seating. During a movie, the PS3 would reach fan speed 2. This was audible in non action movies.
I actually power down my DVR when watching movies so I don't have to hear that damn HDD.
