I know all of you will find this as a shock, and I'm going to go ahead with it, I wanted to wait until I had in-case pictures of it, but I didn't want to wait!
After weeks of deciding, I have decided to replace my PX-116A which is a re-badged Pioneer 120, due to the fact that it tends to get noisy when playing DVD's, although when ripping it is silent, and the fact that I tend to get a lot of ripping errors on the drive which pisses me off.
Now, for the shock, you'll all never guess what drive I have chosen to replace with it...
*drum roll please*
I have chosen to replace my Pioneer 120 DVD-ROM with...[long pause while everyone waits anxiously in thier seats] the Lite-On/Sony SOHD-167T.
It's scheduled to ship today from Newegg in Newark, New Jersey, and, if there's any problems with delivery, you can sure expect an update to my FedEx ranting thread.
Your reactions guys?
