I’ve read the Forum the whole day but can’t come to a conclusion (like many other as I see). I need a new Burner because my NEC-2500 died on me. I’ve read alot about the current BenQ and LiteOn models, but somebody stated that the BenQ is quiet loud. I need the drive as a total allrounder: I need good quality burns on normal DVD and DL media but most important is the noise that it makes when watching movies or listening to music. I have another noisy Toshiba DVD drive in my system which I can’t use for that and the NEC was rather quiet. Shame it’s dead that bastard!
What do you think would suit me? I’ve read a positive review on the Samsung drive the SH-W163A. Do you think it would be a good idea to get one of those? And another member in yet another thread wrote the LiteOn 165P6S would adjust it’s speed according to what it has to do. I had a LiteOn in the past and it was horribly loud though therefore I’m a little sceptic…I also want to listen to classical music and already invested alot to make my PC quiet. I’d highly appreciate your suggestions. Thanks for listening!
