Asus DVD-E616A3 vs AOpen DVD 1648/AAP

Im in the market for a dvd-rom for general dvd reading. I have an LG now, which is slow and LOUD. Im looking for the fastest read speed, high transfer rate, low noise, and good error correction. These are the two ive narrowed it down to, eleminating lite-on and others, i havent found many benchmarks on the asus, but the aopen is very highly rated. So any help on deciding would be helpful.

Please don’t cross-post the same question to other areas of the forum. It’s difficult to co-ordinate the replies, and is frustrating for members trying to help (which is why it’s against forum rules).
