I just read the last DVD roundup (#2) on cdrinfo.com and came to the opinion that the best all around DVD drive to use for a reader with CloneCD was the LiteOn drive, which was fully reviewed in the first roundup but used as a reference drive in the second.

Anyway, I haven't had any luck searching the site for the first DVD roundup to find out a bit more information about this drive before buying one. The folks at CloneCD seem to recommend Toshiba drives, but I read a review of one of those and it said that it had problems with subchannel data and was noisy to boot. The second DVD roundup seemed to tell me just about everything I needed to know except for subjective impressions of the drive, like HOW NOISY IS IT??? There's not much point in my mind in having a noisy DVD drive that drowns out the quiet parts of movies when you're watching them. Does anybody have the link to the first review or actually have one of these?

Try www.cdrinfo.com/hardware for reading the first roundup. As for the noise level depend upon your ears. What we might consider as low, others may consider as high. I think LiteOn 16x has low noise in overall.

Re the noise part of your query. Storagereview.com did a review on the LTD-163 which you can find at:
http://www.storagereview.com/welcome.pl/http://www.storagereview.com/articles/200109/20010912LTD-163_1.html

The review noted that there are a lot noisier drives out there than the Liteon and when playing DVD movies the LTD-163 was almost silent.

I bought the drive myself and I'm impressed with both the low noise levels and picture quality when playing DVD's. The drive runs at 1x speed for DVD playback and is much quieter overall than the 32x Panasonic CD-Rom it replaces.
