1330 is essentially the same model just smaller,
from my experience the HD is indeed a little noisy, but I mean it's really nothing to complain about, just a very VERY quiet ticking almost. The slot load mechanism is to be honest annoying to me, it's a pretty loud noise that happens upon startup and upon disc insertion...i personally wish it was quiet so then you could start up without someone looking at you like "wtf was that"
please note: disc inserting/mechanism noise is only about 2 seconds long
