All the LG drives I have used have been quiet, and they have read scratched/damaged media well. I have not used the GCE-8526, however.

The Asus 5232AS QuieTrack is very quiet as well, but I do not know how well it reads scratched/damaged discs. If you get the Asus, make sure you get the QuieTrack version, the non-QuieTrack version is loud.

I would classify both the LG and Asus drives as being reliable.

and if you're considering the Asus, read Ian's review of it:
