Quiet dual layer DVD burner?

Hey, I currently have an NEC AD-7170A dual layer dvd burner installed in my shuttle xpc. It is very very loud when reading discs or burning.

I would like to replace it with a quiet dual layer burner under $40 shipped. Any recommendations? Thanks.

Yeah, my NEC (ND-4551A) is a bit on the noisy side as well.

LGs are the quietest I’ve come across. My BenQs are as well, but good luck finding one of those :wink:


Agree that LG’s are quiet - also my Samsung is quiet also-eh!

Both Samsung and LG are available in the market.
