Very slight screen noise when accessing Gotek?PSU?

Hello I have just fitted a Gotek to my Atari STE and it seems great! I just need to know is it me being fussy and is it normal to have slight noise on modern LCD tv's while accessing the usb gotek or do I need a psu update?

Cheers

Re: You have got to be kidding me - c64 on ebay

Well what a Bobby Dazzler £52 including postage :) how do I increase the value of my computers by 50% sold on eBay!

Re: What if Commodore and Atari had merged

I don't see the point of this sort of thing. "what if [extremely unlikely thing] had happened? What would happen next?" There is no possible way of knowing. Why would [extremely unlikely thing] have happened in the first place? In real life it didn't, so how much of your fantasy timeline needs to b...
