Still confused

#1

so ive read the reviews but they dont tell me much about the loadness of the drives,
im basically looking for: a real quiet drive that will play my mp3 cd’s without any noise (my current cd-rw’s making load noise’s), to burn hundreds of dvd-+ R’s at top speed and rip video at top speed. I make lots of films too, so someone told me making master disk’s would be important. DVD rams important too, I dont live in the US so these are my choice’s for drives:
Ricoh MP-5240A
Samsung TS-H552
LiteOn SOHW-1653S
Samsung SH-W162
LiteOn LDW-1633S
Pioneer DVR-110
Asustek DRW-1608P2
LiteOn SOHW-1673S
LiteOn SOHW-1693S
LG GSA-4167
Asustek DRW-1608P
LiteOn SHW-160P6S
LiteOn SOHW-1635S
LiteOn SHM-165P6S
BENQ DW1640
BTC DRW-1116IM
Sony DWQ28A
Asustek DRW-1604P
BENQ DW1650
Pioneer DVR-111
LG GSA-4163

another consideration is that id like to aviod a chinese made drive, as am trying to build a ‘boycot china’ system, for tibets sake.
Any help except for “read more reviews” would be great.

I would choose Liteon SOHW-165P6S - it automatically adjust reading speeds to the transfer rate needed so playing mp3 is done quietly. Also it has DVDram and can burn recordable media at high speed.
