I'm still using my Syquest with no issues, but I'm wondering if the noise the unit makes is normal. It's particularly loud and it's particularly loud especially by today's standards. Is that normal or do I have a bunked fan?

Yes, the Syquest drives (and many older hard drives) are quite noisy. I remember when I first got my first Syquest (which was also my first hard drive), I was surprised by the noise. This is from someone coming from a floppy only system where it only makes noise when it reads/writes to a floppy. Now it was a constant whirring noise that sometimes got to me. I swear it eventually affected my hearing but it could have been work related noise too, but I digress...
You could try to change the fan to reduce the noise a bit, but the hard drive noise will still be there.
