No drive can be quiet when reading really fast.

As helpful as that answer is, this question has been asked many, many times

Try using the search, you’ll be surprised what you’ll find :eek: :eek:

I would reccomend the LiteOn 16x. It is very inexpensive and popular and just fine. As stated abouve speed equals noise because as the drive reads faster the disc has to spin faster. If your worrieed about noise durning DVD movie playback don’t be because any decent DVD plying app will slow the drive to inaudable levels when playing a movie.

My 166S with the latest firmware and using WinDVD 5 to watch DVD movies, I can’t hear any noise, my drive is very quiet. It automatically reduces the reading speed.
