I´m guessing a few people here have this drive. I´m thinking of getting it as well.
I´m just wondering what kind of noise levels this particular drive produces. At least compared to other similar drives (mainly Lite-On´s).
It´s strange that the CDRlabs review doesn´t go in to the acoustics of products.
Well it´s partially subjective, yes. But if a drive (or any other component for that matter) is noticeably louder or more quiet than other similar products, people tend to notice. The old GeForce 5800 is an example.
I was just looking for some opinions on the matter.
well, i have a GSA-H10L, which is basically the same drive as the H10N (with the addition of LightScribe).
it's just as quiet as other drives i have.
a little quieter than Toshiba SD-M1712 DVD-ROM.
not as quiet as my BenQ DW1620, but i was running a CD and the BenQ was quite slower than the LG and Toshiba drives so it's not a fair comparison.
noticably more quiet than the LiteOn LTR-52327S CDRW.
bottom line - reasonably quiet. no complaints as far as i'm concerned.
(and BTW my case isn't soundproof in any way, by design nor my any modding. and it's side panels are open).
