Lots. HP does not seem to take acoustic noise level in to consideration
in its designs.
I have an old HP5245L. The fan is quite noisy. When I upgraded to the
more modern HP5345A counter I was disappointed to find that its fan is
even louder. The HP5335A also has a rather noticeable fan.
But they are not all bad. If I recall correctly the HP5334A does not
have a fan and some of the other small HP models do not. But if noise
is a consideration, you need to check the specific model to be sure.
I have several pieces of HP (and other brands) of test equipment. A lot
of it only gets turned on when I actually want to use it. It is just
too noisy to leave on otherwise.
