I'm a new member to this forum, so please bear with me.
As some of you may know, Lite-On released a new "version" of the SOHC-5232K.
As far as I can tell, the only change lies in the balancing mechanism.
The SOHC-5232K uses VAS while the new SOHC-5235K uses ABS.
I poked around here on the forums and got the impression that the ABS is louder.
This would seem pretty stupid (to me at least),
since that would mean that Lite-On remade an old drive to make itâ€¦ louder?
Could be... anything's possible, but maybe I misinterpreted. (wouldn't be the first time)
So just to be safe, I wanted to verify with you guys.
This brings me to my question:
Is the SOHC-5235K considerably more silent than the SOHC-5232K?
