Quiet PC


Quiet PC USA is a company dedicated to keeping your computers noise to a minimum as the name suggests, with such items as sound dampening products and fan controllers, they have everything to help keep your PCs noise to a minimum. This month we are having a look at a new product of theirs known as Quiet Feet.


- Quiet Feet


You may be wondering to yourself what Quiet Feet are and how they will help reduce noise to your computer, the answer is simple. They are designed to sit on the bottom of external products (such as CD-ROMs) that cause vibration from its spinning mechanical parts. Instead of vibrating the desk and causing other objects to rattle, these products help absorb just about all the vibration preventing other items from rattling.


While some people may not have any use for such a product, they are out there and could come in handy if required. Being available in multiple sizes, you shouldn't have a problem finding one to suit your product.



Quiet Feet could become handy on such items like laptops, external CD-ROM or Hard Drives, the type of products which vibrate when being accessed and with poorly designed feet will cause the vibration to travel through your desk, etc. Such features as a pressure sensitive peel-and-stick adhesive backing for easy application to the bottom of your computer and a felt dot to prevent slipping or marking of the surface that your computer sits on. If noise does bother you and you try everything possible to keep it to a minimum, this may be exactly what you're after.




Quiet Feet is a nice, simple yet effective product; while the market is defiantly limited it is out there and people are going to find them helpful. With any luck we will get the chance to see some more products from Quiet PC in following months and see what other ways they have to help people who don't want to hear any noise their computer when it is on.
