I'm searching for a Dual Layer burner for my Linux HTPC. Here are the priorities:
1) QUITE!! -- I currently have a (NEC) Optiarc DVD RW AD-7170A and it is fairly loud.
2) SATA -- The JMicron IDE controller on my mother board is not well supported
3) Price -- Please suggest any price drive but I'm looking for a drive less than $40. If that is possible
4) not horribly slow -- this is not a high priority. 1&2 are much more important than speed.
