According to one german it magazine (c’t), 1650/1655 are much louder than 1640. Did you experience the same and what could be the reason for that. Isn’t it the same mechanism.
Is it possible to make these drives quiet with software.
Thanks

Its a fast drive and most fast drives, when reading 16X DVDs, are a kind of noisy.

Maybe with Nero's Drive Speed to reduce speed while watching a movie for example, no reason to do this when ripping a movie.

Yes I have heard this from various sources, DW165X series is probably using different mechanism, motor and may produce more vibrations at high-speed leading to the increased noise observed when compared to the smooth DW1640's... The DW1640 is a proven reliable unit, with companies such as Philips, Plextor, Sony using this drive as an OEM for their brand names.

Hi 
AFAIK the 1650/1655 uses the same mechanism, motor as the 1640. Just ran a series of tests for noise levels that are currently in my pc. 1st. Plextor 716 was the quietest followed in order of  quietness 2nd. BenQ 1650/1655 4th. BenQ 1640 5th. Pioneer A10 & finally last Lite-On SHW-16H5S.
Note all BenQs' speedpatched  with ala42s' MediaCodeSpeedEdit. Pioneer using QuietDrive is in performance mode + speedpatched.

The BenQ 1640 has a reading speed for burned DVD media of 8x whereas the BenQ 1650/1655 reads at 16x. That could easily be the reason why c't would claim that the new BenQ drives are more noise since they read twice as fast!

I don't have a BenQ drive myself, but why don't you try using Nero DriveSpeed?
