As Lite-On drives as we know them may disappear altogether (because of the Sony chipsets and all that), I'd like to have one of them before it's not possible anymore because of the features they have I cannot get anywhere else. However, I really don't know which one to choose. Here is what I am looking for: I think all Lite-On drives are by definition extremely loud, but are there any which would be not as loud as they are since the introduction of the brand? Of course I'd like something that can be easily found for a relatively low price, I will buy from an online store in Canada. Currently I think I will get the 1633. There is also one other thing I would like to know: the led what color it gets and how does it works now? I read in Cdfreaks' review that the 1653 had one blinking LED, which I absolutely HATE in every writer I bought. Does the 1633 behaves differently or the same way?
God, I remember when I wanted to buy every cd-writer known to earth because it was cheap and I enjoyed but, of course no one understood why I would ever need more than one. I think the LG is quite tempting too... so CDFreaks, please do not let this be another Pandora's box.
