1) No. In fact, the new 52327S takes half the access time as the older 52x model.
2) When you burn at 52x, ALL drives are noisy.
3) If you can find the 52x32x52 52327S, that would be even better. But if you can't, take the 52246S.
4) 52327S access time = 80ms (typical). 166S access time = 120ms (typical).
